Things to Remember

contributed by Rebecca Mobley

  • Your first job will not always be the job for you!

  • You are interviewing the school as much as the school is interviewing you.

  • Don't be afraid to ask questions - it pays off in the end.

  • Become friends with your Secretary and Custodial Staff!

  • Stay away from NEGATIVE teachers!

  • You know more than your students.

  • Become creative - you are only limited by your imagination.

  • Thinking on your feet is a must!

  • Expect the unexpected!

  • Follow through with discipline consequences!

  • Never stop performing or learning!

  • No Bora el Pisaron (Do not erase the board)

Happy Teaching





Attention TSU Alumni:  Consider sending me an e-mail so I can add you to this list.  I would love to include a link to your classroom or personal website.  Also, if you have a helpful link or resource that I can share with our future music educators, I will add yours to the Elementary Music Links page.  Finally, consider contributing to this page.  We could really use your wit and wisdom!
