"You play guitar, Mrs. Stotz?" Several students asked in surprise. M, one of my 8th graders stopped in front of me and asked the same question. A warm smile grew on her face as I answered.
"I'm learning. Mrs. Suchauki is giving me some lessons."
"That's great!" M replied. "Have fun!"
I headed off to my first official guitar lesson with a warm feeling. The response from the kids was encouraging. They were really pleased that I was learning guitar. Many of them are learning themselves. M is one of Mrs. Suchauki's guitar students and has been playing on the worship team. I think her warm, encouraging smile meant the most to me.
