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.
