Don’t think I want to be a middle school band director. I was talking to one of the teachers of the Vela band and he was telling me about how he doesn’t get to go to TMEA. he said the last time he went he only got to go on Friday and Saturday. And the very first year he was teaching, he went the whole convention but the head band director kinda made a face about it. He then told me about how another band director went to TMEA only on Saturday because his head band director let him go hut after he got.out of work on Friday evening.
I don’t get it….tmea is there specifically for music teachers. Why wouldn’t you promote them going? I mean….if there’s not enough money to send them I understand….but to frown on them attending? That kinda sucks.
