Life Needs A Little Variety!

So for the past 8 weeks I have been co-directing a Variety Show for the middle school where I work. I have been alongside the fabulous Mr. John Caldwell and we have had an absolute blast!

I did all the chroeography for the show and did some vocal coaching for the kids. It was honestly one of the most fun expereinces I have had thus far in my short life. Although it was stressful beyond belief, it was so worth it!

The show included numbers such as "Dynamite" by Taio Cruz, "It's a Hard Knock Life", and "It's Raining Men." Some skits were thrown in also. We had and I Love Lucy skit, Little Rascals, and the Brady Bunch.

My favorite thing about the whole process was watching these 6th and 7th graders gain confidence about themselves while developing new talents! I grew so close to them through this process. I wouldn't trade a single minute of it!
After all is said and done, this experience has made me more excited than EVER to graduate, move, and start working in a school and have students of my very own!

I LOVE TEACHING!! Seeing the joy and love on those kids faces is the most rewarding thing in the world!
