A New Member's Summer Conference Testimonial
After being allowed to attend the ACDA conference at CT College this past weekend, I was a little apprehensive on whether I would be able to fully participate - I was not a member and have never been to any of the ACDA sponsored functions in my 38 years as a music educator/choral director. After the first 10 minutes, when the president spoke on his life experiences both professional and personal, I knew that not only was I in the right place, but I completely belonged there.
The day was such a professional and personal "shot in the arm" for me as I head back to the Waterbury Arts Magnet School to prepare for my 10th year there as their Middle School and High School Choral Conductor. I was filled with energy and a renewed interest in pursuing excellence once again at my job. Thanks to Cory Ganschow and the rest of the presenters, especially Kevin Isaacs, I am looking forward to both my upcoming school year and to becoming a member of ACDA.
Sincerely, Marianna Vagnini Dadamo
