Episode 40- How to advocate for music education in Music in Our Schools Month
In this episode, we'll discuss ways to advocate for your music program during Music in our Schools Month.  Some ways to advocate aren't just about barging into your latest Congressman's office and demanding respect.   Most of the ways to advocate are about simply inviting parents and other teachers to observe what you're teaching to the students in the music room.  Sometimes, the simplest things go the longest way with bringing awareness and support for music education.

Episode 39- Mentorship for the elementary music teacher with Elisa Jansen Jones
In this episode, Elisa Jansen Jones and I discuss mentorship for elementary music teacher's.  Mentorship is usually just thought of as being assigned one teacher to help you when you're starting out in your teaching career.  But, did you know it is actually so much more than that?  You are capable of getting the help and support you need as an elementary music teacher, even if you don't have many connections.   I'd love for you to leave a rating and a review of the podcast on I-tunes by clicking hereand be sure to share the podcast with any music teacher friends who would find it helpful.  To join The Elementary Music Teacher Academy, click here and remember to enter coupon code "podcast10" at checkout to get 10% off of either the academy or The Elementary Music Teacher Blueprint course (which is sold separately or included inside of the academy).
