Thank you Wysong Families

Dear Wysong Families, As you may or may not have heard, I will be leaving Wysong at the end of the year to work as the music teacher leader with Dr. Nielsen at the district music office.  While I am excited for my new career adventure, I am sad to leave Wysong, and especially sad that I will no longer be making music with my wonderful students, the best musicians in the district! 

I will be forever grateful for the opportunity to open a new school and to create a culture of music learning and growth for all of us as well as all the friendships.  In my new position I will be responsible for working on curriculum development, professional learning for teachers and being an instructional coach and mentor to music teachers in the district.  My love for music education continues, it now just takes a different form.

 Your new teacher is Mr. Chris Wheeler, a great friend and colleague who will do an amazing job of taking Wysong to the next level.  I know the students will love making music with Mr. Wheeler very much and I look forward to hearing about all the exciting things you will do in the future.  Thank you for all of your support over the past four years and I wish you all the best.

 Musically yours,

Mrs. Bush
