Last Monday Kari Bragg had her first interview for a music teacher position. She met with Clinton, MO middle school principal, visited with the retiring music teacher and took a tour of the music room (next fall, with the opening of a new high school, the middle school will move to the old high school). She would, in addition to teaching general music classes, also direct the middle school choral program.
The interview went well, and she was told that she would get a call on Friday about the position, even if someone else were offered the job. So she was surprised, and pleased to be offered the position Thursday morning.
Clinton, MO is just a few miles southeast of Kansas City, MO. There are two nearby colleges nearby where she can pursue her graduate studies in music education. The Clinton school and community seems to be vary supportive of the arts, and it seems to be a very good match for Kari.
From a very young age it was clear to us that Kari would be a teacher. Then when she began to sing, and learned to play a wide variety of instruments, we were pretty sure that she would be a music teacher. And there is little doubt that she will be a popular and effective music teacher.
Mom and Dad are also pleased that she will live fairly close to their Cape Girardeau home.Congratulations Kari!!!!!!
