Re: 9 yrs for nothing
I sure did. Built a never had a first division band of 30 into a 5 year in a row 1st division, OPS State band of around 100. Within 4 years, it was as if I was never there. You wouldn't have even known I was there except the trophies with my name on them (and the kids'- I engraved every kid's name on them as well). Don't look back...
Friday night i had the opportunity to return to my last stop, for lack of a better term. It was great to see some former students and colleagues, of course, but the band....
I spent 9 yrs building that program into something. They were around 55 when i left. Now there are 10 members playing with horrible uncharacteristic sounds and twerking and shaking their butts obscenely in the stands.
I know there is nothing i can do about this, but it is hard to watch. I nearly left in tears!
At least i was able to see my little sister get married the next day, so there is that.
Has anyone else experience anything similar to this during their time? What did you do or not do?
