PPMTA BLOG POST May 2017
Greetings PPMTA Membership! I would like to take this space to thank you for the opportunity to be your PPMTA President. My PPMTA Board made it so easy, and I am grateful for their input and all the work they have done. I know that Barbara Taylor will be an excellent leader moving forward. I will remain on the board in the capacity of VP Publicity and look forward to expanding our organization and reaching out to the community.
I urge you all to become involved in one small way in the coming 2017-2018 year. Yes, we can be excellent music teachers without joining a professional organization such as the Pikes Peak Music Teachers Association. I am a better teacher because of the exposure I have gotten to other teachers’ ideas and presentations. I am a better teacher because of the support I have received from my colleagues in this organization. My students are better musicians because of the opportunities they have received through PPMTA.
I know we are in the midst of our own “May madness” – aka recital season! Hang in there and find a way to catch a breather this summer!
Susan Marten, President
