neweducator_finalHey folks!

Leading Notes just released their July 2012 issue, “Education the New Educator.” This issue is packed with great topics such as online learning, reflection and assessment, student teaching, and professional development.

I have a piece in this issue titled, “From Workshops to Cheesecake: 10 Reasons Why Students Should Attend Conferences.” I reflected on my conference experiences as a student and tried to capture why they are so beneficial and delicious…yes, I said delicious. You’ll understand when you read.

To me, there is no better environment then one where you can get valuable professional development and safely let your inner geek surface.

So go check out this issue! And while you are at it, check out some of the previous issues too. There is a lot of great content from music educators and music majors waiting to be absorbed!
