This past year was a Steven King novel, "Echoes from the Past."
I have accepted a job on a campus that will have band for the first time ever. Beginners will be 9th and 10th graders with a grade added each year. Pay is GREAT, no football games/marching band. The facilites are doable.
Admin. admitted to me that he knows nothing about band programs. The floor is mine.
I am fighting my inner clock on the urgency of getting things done. I am finding that I am having to inhale for 2, out for 5 a few times before I react/respond to situations that I have encountered so far. I have to remind me, "no UIL, no UIL, no UIL."
Suggestions for approach?
