I really enjoyed working with the students, parents and staff of this organization.
What I wish was different
I would request a different schedule that doesnt conflict with classes so I could be at every rehearsal but overall there wasn't much I would change.
A lot of these students come to marching band to escape the realities of life. This activity is something they can put all their time and energy into and watch everything they've worked for pay off in the end. As a staff member, being someone who these students could look up to and come to at the end of the day to forget about the everyday struggles of school and home life was my top priority. Just be there for them.
