Episdoe 192 – Where To Get Advice – Hint…it’s not on social media

I was transplanted into teaching from a performing career. I didn’t know anybody, but I quickly found my homies who could give me advice and encouragement when needed.

It’s important to find someone you can call – on the phone – or have coffee with. Social media friends don’t count. Oh, there are times when that can help, but there are times you just need to cry with someone.

The greatest mentor I ever had was Hosea Haynes. He was a member of the American School Band Director’s Association, an organization I’m proud to be a part of now.

If you don’t have some great people you can call, it just might be your own fault.
