About Joel Wagner 522 Articles
Joel Wagner (@sywtt) began teaching band in 2002. Though he had a lot of information, his classes were out of control. He found himself tired, frustrated, disrespected by students, lonely, and on the brink of quitting. He had had enough. He resigned from his school district right before spring break of his second year and made it his personal mission to learn to be a great teacher. So You Want To Teach? is the ongoing story of that quest for educational excellence.

  1. Hey, Joel! Thanks so much for including MusicEdMajor.net on this list… it's really an honor to be included on a list with such innovators, thinkers, and writers. I look forward to continuing to do everything I can to help the preservice music teachers out there :)

  2. I agree that "Look at my happy rainbow" is a wonderful blog. Adventures in kindergarten, with a male teacher? What could be more interesting. He truly loves his "sprouts" and it shows in every post.

    I have my own teaching blog. Post will be few this summer, but pick up once school begins.


  3. Thanks Joel for these wonderful blog introductions! I'm definitely putting "Look at my happy rainbow" on my list. The description is beautiful and I teach young learners, too, so the information valuable!

  4. Hey, thanks for the shout out for my blog. I'm taking the summer months off, but I really appreciate you sending some new readers my way. Thanks again! -Matt

  5. @MissTyneal — I love Pat's blog and absolutely love what she is doing. Her mission is almost congruent with mine, actually. The reason I didn't include it in the list was because it's been around almost as long as this one (hers started in September, 2007). My aim today was to look at some of the newer blogs out there and see what I could find. Soon, I'm gonna throw together a list that will include her…hang on. :)

    @Andy, @Shelly, @Matt — No problem. I'm glad to have found your blogs and hope you will continue writing…

  6. Yeah Texas! I love your blog… thanks for pushing us all to think and move forward in the best interest of the kiddos!
