Wonderful Wednesday #9 - Mrs. Salmi

First of all, I would like to congratulate Kathleen as she is the winner of the dinner for two at Catfish Express!  If you will send me an e-mail with your address on it, I will send you the card.
Now, on to other wonderful things...
A saying that really bugs me is "Those that can do and those that can't teach."  How ridiculous!  I know many teachers that both "do" and "teach" very well.  One of those very capable teachers is Diva's piano teacher.  Mrs. Salmi is amazing. 
From strictly a Household Manager's point of view, I am really thankful that she is so communicative with me as a parent.  She is highly organized (again, something I really appreciate) and has such a soothing nature.  When she speaks, it's almost like purring - truly. 
From a musician's point of view, I value that she nurtures a deep love of and appreciation for music in her students.  Many of whom go on to be music majors in college and certainly all continue to play and/or enjoy music the rest of their lives. 
But from a Mom's view, I love that she brings the absolute best in her students.  Rarely is there a teacher that develops such a relationship and trust between themselves and their students like she has with hers.  Diva adores her and enjoys lessons and practicing; how many parents can say that about their kiddos?!
Of course it doesn't hurt that Mrs. Salmi is also the one who brought us Mrs. Salmi's Cookies.  :)

  1. Congratulations to Kathleen! I just wanted to pass along that today is customer appreciation at the Marshall Kroger. They are giving away hot dogs, popcorn and Kroger colas in the deli.
