Why I Teach Music Blog Hop Giveaway Winners!

Last week an amazing group of music teacher bloggers shared the things that motivate and inspire us as music teachers. We invited you to share your #whyiteachmusic stories as well. I was inspired by your responses and loved finding that many of you didn't set out to teach the wee ones but rather seemed to fall in love with their excitement and joy somewhere along the way. I hope you will take the time to read the other blog posts and the comments sometime this week. I think you will be inspired as well; it's been the perfect way to get ready for Thanksgiving here in the US! I will announce the giveaway winners at the end of this post, but first I want to share some of my favorite comments shared by all of YOU about why we do what we do:

1. "I can't believe I get paid to sing, dance, and play games all day!

 2. "I also teach music so I can continue to live out my childhood in the experiences I have with my students in the classroom. It definitely keeps me young and fuels my creative side!"

3. "On my hardest, most frustrating days, I close my door and focus on those amazing little kids in front of me. Their smiles, laughter, wonder, and silliness feed my soul in a way nothing else does!"


OH, I couldn't agree more!! There were so many more wonderful posts! Thank you everyone for sharing your words of inspiration. I am smiling inside and out! Here is a picture of all the giveaway items!! Check it out!!!
