P.S. You Are Pretty

This semester, I had the opportunity to "pre-student teach" at Hillcrest Jr. High. I chose to do the boy's choir, thinking that I would learn the most from that difficult group, and yes, they are difficult :) It turned out to be such a great experience! I went for ten weeks, and got to do warm-ups with the boys, do some voice testing (you know, because their voices are definitely unpredictable at this age) and even got to teach them parts of songs. What an awesome experience! They definitely weren't little angels, but they were sweet enough. Friday was my last day, and it was actually kind of sad for me. The boys found out it was my last day and got together and made me a home-made card. The front says "Thank you Mrs. Hackett" (yep, Mrs.!) with a huge, and somewhat scary looking smiley face. The boys wrote very nice things. One of them wrote "Good luck!!! P.S. You are pretty". Lol it made me laugh. They were great boys to work with! I think that I will end up teaching Middle School. There's something inside of me that says that's where I need to be. I can't wait to student teach in the fall! Teaching will be such a trying but rewarding experience. I hope that I have a boys choir just like the ones that I just left :)


  1. You ARE cute! What a wonderful experience for you to teach the boys. I am excited to follow you through your student teaching opportunities next year, too. You're great.

  2. does this mean in the future when i have boys, you will teach them how to sing? Heck to the Yes!!!

  3. haha this made me laugh, but you are very pretty!
