This episode is all about your students. As much as we, as teachers, need help and advice, I think we can agree our students need help too. How can we create a culture around our music program, no matter what the situation looks like?
To help me cover this subject, I’ve brought on my dear friend (and one of the most genuinely happy people I know—I mean, his positivity is positively infectious!) Cameron W Jenkins. Cameron is the founder of Full Potential Leadership, a founding member of REACH Through Music, and Director of Bands at Bayou View Middle School with more than 180 students in their All-Superior middle school band program.
Cameron’s going to walk us through his 5Gs and share with us ways we can shine a light on our students in a way that encourages them to shine their light on others as well. You are really in for a treat!
