Back in the USA
We have been back in the US for 6 weeks now, and I am still adjusting to life “back home”. I had an amazing year in Monteverde, Costa Rica, and honestly feel like I've left a part of my heart back there. My experience being the music teacher at our kids' school, Cloud Forest School/Centro de Educación Creativa, opened up a new way of looking at music and how I could integrate it into my life, my family, and my community. I LOVED teaching, hard as it was (you try teaching cup rhythms to a classroom full of middle schoolers!), and am now looking at getting a Masters in Education with a focus on integrating the arts into teaching.
Don't know exactly where this new direction will lead, but I'm excited about going back to school and also finding new opportunities to teach in all kinds of settings. I still LOVE to perform, so expect a show some time later in the Fall, when I've got my feet a bit more under me. I also sense flonase online a bilingual kids album in me, waiting for the right timing….
