This Works For Me!

Share an idea with others. We’re all in this together!

So many of us have been forced to rethink our curriculum, teaching strategies, classroom management, and lesson plans this year due to the unprecedented circumstances we are facing. You may have an idea that will help someone else. Please share it with us – we plan to share as many as possible in an article, “This Works For Me!” in our October Louisiana Musician. We also plan to add a section on our website for more of your ideas.

Personal information: LMEA will share your name, school, and city in our article and on the website. We will NEVER share your email or phone number.

Submit by October 15, 2020 to be included in The Louisiana Musician.
