Ohio Music Educators Association conference in Cleveland, OH
Today at the Ohio Music Educators Association conference in Cleveland, OH I had the great pleasure of performing with my former alma matter's jazz ensemble, Warren Harding High school. In the picture are my 5th, 6th, 7th, and high school band teachers. Without them, I wouldn't be who I am today. Jessica Turner, on the right and Richard Rollo and Lynn Marlin on the left. I often mention a 6th grade band teacher giving me my first jazz album... that's Jessica! For all you educa...tors out there that are tired, frustrated, sick of the politics, don't want to fight anymore... allow this picture to fuel your fire! You NEVER KNOW who's in your program... who's listening... who's shedding... I'm eternally grateful that these individuals, and so many others, saw me... spent extra time with me, and helped me in spite of the challenges they faced everyday!!
