Chaos and Joy: Second Trenton Music Makers Site Opens at Dunn Middle School
iddle School is different.
We thought we'd need to recruit intensively, that our teachers should visit sixth and seventh grade classrooms and demonstrate a little of what they'd be teaching and what the new after-school orchestra would be like. Get a few kids to come, who would then get their friends. Maybe we'd have 20, which would be enough to launch the new site.
"Hey guys," said Antonio Ruiz, our new Site Coordinator and a very popular math teacher at Dunn School, "I think you're not going to need to recruit. The word is out and I already have a waiting list."
A waiting list? Before we'd even begun to recruit?
