“You can count on me like one two three
I’ll be there.
And I know when I need it,
I can count on you like four three two
You’ll be there.
‘Cause that’s what friends are supposed to do, oh yeah.”
It’s amazing. While we are all practicing being physically distant, the connections between students, parents, and educators are stronger than ever. If you need to see examples, be sure to check out Dream Teachers on Facebook. They are sharing stories of how educators throughout the state of Louisiana are overcoming obstacles to connect with students. I have been proud to do my part with creating music lessons to be shared on STPPS Remote Learning Resources TV along with sharing a “Music Idea of the Day” on my Facebook page, “Kelly Stomps, 2016 Louisiana Teacher of the Year.” I am also happy to share with everyone my “Musical Conversation Calendar” for April. Again, the purpose of the calendar is to facilitate conversations about music. You can easily Google anything that is unknown. While the last few weeks have been difficult for all, I am grateful to have wonderful students, parents, teachers, administrators, friends, and family members to “count on.”
