HONK! and the Golden Apple – What a week!

I started the week with five different shows of HONK! with 149 middle school children grades 4-8. The show has been life-changing for so many students. The interaction of the various grade levels along with the talent has been incredible. I have three more individual casts to go. It is quite the buzz around Sunset Ridge School. We are only a school of 296 students.

Then on Wednesday afternoon, the Golden Apple Foundation surprised me with a life-changing visit. I am one the the ten winners of the Golden Apple. I am so humbled at this honor. The Chicago Tribune and the Pioneer Press was there for pictures and interviews. I will post pictures once I get them. This morning in the Metro section was a wonderful picture with an article. Additionally, the amount of emails that I have received from parents, students, fellow teachers, and the community has been overwhelming. I am truly touched. For once I am speechless.

  2. Carol,

    Congratulations on the award! I enjoy reading about all of the fabulous sounding projects you work on with your students. It’s always wonderful learning about the creative ways music teachers are making use of technology in their classrooms. Have a great remainder of the school year. – Evan T.
