The adventure at Christ the King Classical School started today. I am exhausted, having taught all nine grade levels in one day, with just short breaks and a slightly longer lunch break. Fortunately, only Wednesdays will be like this, with the other days much lighter. I introduced myself, tried to learn students' names (this will be a huge challenge for me), talked about what music class will be like, and our procedures during the pandemic. We'll jump right into some easy singing tomorrow with Mass responses. When talking about my "story," I mentioned how we moved to Kansas City because I believed Christ the King School to be a special place with a mission to which I am committed. I told them that because they are created in the image of God, they are innately beautiful, and thus capable of achieving extraordinary beauty and remarkable things, and it's my job to help them get there. This is going to be a crazy adventure, especially during this time, but it's going to be great.
