In a few weeks, I will be going to study Suzuki Book Four in Kansas. After completing the week, I’ll have my teacher training in Books 1 through 10! (I’m still pondering doing book 1 again in the near future, since it’s been a long time). I remember this time last year I was excited about going to Columbus for books 2/3. So much has happened since then–I would not have guessed I would complete a whole year of Suzuki Pedagogy Classes and learn SO much more about teaching children than I could have guessed. (Thanks to Carol Smith, and then of course, HUGE thanks to Vera McCoy-Sulentic for her generosity of time and spirit!). Plus, a few weeks ago, I was so tired, and couldn’t believe I had to attend an Institute still…but now I am recharged and ready to go! I know it will be a fantastic experience, and I look forward to meeting other teachers as well.
