Episode 16: Reflections from a Student Teaching Cooperating Teacher with Peter Haley
What happens when you're a student teaching mentor/ cooperating teacher and you yourself never student taught? This is high school choral director Peter Haley's situation at East Gaston High School where he uses his experience to shape the student teaching time of his students in a way he never had because his journey to public music education came after time as a full time church music minister.
Peter served as Nyi Nyi's student teaching advisor and shares how he came to teaching and ways he partnered with University supervisors to ensure he was providing effective mentorship to Nyi Nyi in order for every person in the East Gaston High School choral rehearsal to learn and grow.

I am excited to be going back to school this year... but this time as a student. But classroom teaching has been my life for 8 years (technically 10) and reflecting to make things better is in my DNA. I can't help but think about what I would be changing if I was back in the classroom as a choir teacher this year.
