Missy Strong-Smith | The Pillars of Music: Building True Community and Belonging
For In-Service Music Teachers
Wednesday, March 20th (8:00pm EST)

Two simple words, “Be Musical,” coupled with research about the power of belonging transformed my classroom. The students and I created what continues to be an evolving foundation for our Music community. Now we are (almost always) joyful musicians working together to create (almost always) low-stress, high-engagement music experiences. Learn about this process and how you might do something similar in your classroom!
