Wonderful Wednesday #9 - Mrs. Salmi
Photo Courtesy of freefoto.comFirst 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. :)
