I do not know if anyone actually reads my blog posts, or if this post will matter to others, but I need to take the time to apologize.
A little over a year ago, I promised that I would upload a banjo progress video in a couple of months’ time. However, I did not do that, nor did I continue my banjo journey. Right after my last learning project post, several big life changes took place for me personally, as well as in my family. We have had a crazy year and, quite frankly, I was just too distracted to think about practicing an instrument.
Now, though, I am ready to get back on track. I am hoping to pick up my banjo again and, not just relearn what I knew, but keep improving and creating ways that I can use it as an educational tool.
Along with that, I want to start using this blog again. I did use it in the fall, to document my field placement, but I want to continue it as I complete my last BEAD course and move into my internship. If nothing else, it is a great place for me to reflect and it provides a source of inspiration as I look back at old posts and recognize the growth that I have had as a teacher.
Sooo…. all this to say that I am deeply sorry for not fulfilling my promise, BUT… I am back!
