I can't say that I blame you. I hated school as a kid, myself so I knew that teaching was not for me.

Music has always been a part of our family, too. My mother is a violinist and I have been playing the flute since I was about, what.....10 years old?

My mother taught orchestra for about 10 years, too (1-8), and decided that she didn't want to be involved in the school system anymore because she was not appreciated, at all.

She had to travel all day long between about 3-4 schools and was always pushed around by the other teachers and principle because she was only the "music teacher".

I cannot believe the amount of stress the school system put her under. They always complained because their students JUST HAAAAAAAD to take an hour from the "routine curriculum" to go "goof off in music class". Oh, It really burns me up just to think about it.

You know, I saw on the news where they are claiming that Music can actually "prevent alzheimers" because it fires more neurotransmitters in the brain than most every other activity in this world, yet, no teacher approves of music because it's not math or science!! They claim that it's "goofing off".

Anyway, I think I understand some of your frustrations. My mother ended up on Prozac for a while becuase of these other teachers and principles stressing her out and they always made her feel like she wasn't worthy.

She ended up doing private lessons at home and she loves it. She's doing very well. So, I think that would be a great idea.

I think you should DEFINITELY get out of the school system, too, if they are treating you ANYTHING like they treated my mother. She doesn't even have IBS and was sick alot. It cannot be good on your IBS.

Take Care and Good Luck!
