President’s Message

Welcome New Music Educators!

Congratulations! You have chosen the rewarding career for influencing the minds of young people through music education! My name is Gretchen Bixler, KMEA President. I want you to know that you are not all alone on a “teaching island”. KMEA is here to help you begin your teaching profession and will be here in your future. I want to you to succeed and have many joyous years of teaching music. Please take time to explore our “New Teacher Handbook” and refer to it often. The KMEA Leadership has spent many hours placing useful information on this site. It has wonderful material for you as a beginning teacher, but also is beneficial for all teachers in whatever point they are in their career. I look forward to meeting you in person, and I wish you the best of luck in your teaching endeavors. Please do not hesitate to contact me if questions arise.
