Developing Student Leaders

"Ten percent are great leaders; 80% are followers; 10% are bad leaders." So says Tim Lautzenheiser, affectionately called Dr. Tim by the music community. Dr. Tim founded Attitude Concepts for Today, an organization dedicated to developing student leadership in music ensembles.

He is the top name in music education, delivering keynotes and workshops across the country. I was privileged to interview him for my podcast, …

Passionate Endeavor Or Just Getting By?

What is more risky? To pursue something you love that you have a talent for, or take the safe job that you feel no connection to and hope doesn’t drive you to despair? Putting on a false face everyday, pretending that you care, going through the motions, hoping you meet the productivity benchmarks. Certainly this is the case in many workplaces. We have workplaces full of people working at only 25 to 30 percent of their true capacity. I believe that the only way to do your best, most…

What Is Your Charmed Life?

The Charmed Life.  What kind of life would you live if money was of "no object," time wasn't a concern, and you had no educational barrier?  What does YOUR charmed life look like to you?  This is the question we ALL ought to answer for ourselves, the question that seems very critical to answer, if we are ever to figure out what we truly want to pour our time into.  I still think of it as, "What do I want to be when I grow up?" :-)  This is not been an easy task.  For me, there are days when…

I Pressed "START"


Well friends,

I made a decision with my friend to start a podcast. After feeling left behind when I was not accepted into a certain program I was hoping to, I felt so down. Actually, I was angry. I never get…

Exciting News!

Ok, so I know I'm not very active here. Quite honestly I am very busy living, and growing my business, but I felt like this was too exciting to not share.

The last 3 1/2 years has seen me spending increasing amounts of time teaching music to kindergarten and first grade students at Lakeview Elementary in Lakeside, CA. It started out so humbly and innocently as an offer to help a pre-K class with music. Our twins were enrolled there for this semester long class they called "Early…

Our Schools Confine Potential

Anyone that spend much time with me these days is well aware of my disappointment in our schools. This brilliant video sums it up very well from a student’s perspective. It also sums up my biggest challenge a parent.

Too Much in My Head

Some days I get to work in the morning, and I can not concentrate for the life of me.  I'm an elementary school teacher, so focus is pretty important if I want to keep my sanity.

But, the thing is that I don't want to continue being an elementary school teacher.  I've tossed some ideas around in the past about how to maneuver out of the classroom, and into a "specials" teacher job, such as a library media specialist, or a technology integration specialist.  But, really, I don't want…

I want the kind of passion I see in my husband when he is doing something new in programming. He is excited. He wants to "work". I am still looking for my passion. I am interested in doing a little bit of this and trying a little bit of that but I don't know what I am really passionate about. What can I do well enough that I wouldn't consider work? 

I used to think that I needed to get an education and the jobs will be there. Needless to say my education did not bring jobs to me on a…
