The first year of teaching at a new school is tough. You teach, introduce yourself constantly, struggle to learn how things work and attempt to establish your class/program. Hanover High School has several new teachers this year. I have been impressed with the skill, passion and energy they bring to their classrooms.
For the past two evenings the work of one new staff member, Jenny Chambers, took center stage, literally. Jenny took over as director of the HHS chorus this year, replacing Jane Woods. If Jenny was nervous with such a visible exhibition after her first couple of months at HHS, it never showed. She was gracious, funny and caring with her interactions with her singers. The chorus responded to her, as they do each day in class, and the product spoke (sang) for itself.
I would like to offer my deepest congratulations to Jenny, to the entire HHS chorus and to the other performing groups. You should all be proud of the work you’ve done and I can’t wait to hear what else you have in store for us this year!
Enjoy the weekend,
