Teacher Saves Program and Keeps Musical Dreams Alive
** It's Future Teacher Of America and to celebrate, OGTV is sharing this story about one noteworthy teacher who stepped out of his comfort zone to save his school's music program. **
Hopefully you have had the good fortune to have a teacher like this - one that you remember all of your life.
Several years ago the students at Rauner College Prep in Chicago, IL, received some bad news - they were told that the schools only music teacher was leaving. For the 350 students in the program, that looked like it would mean the end of their music education.
But then up stepped Robert Vega. He volunteered to become a one-man music department and became an inspiration to his students by taking on all 350 band members to ensure that the arts stay in school.
"Mr. Vega is just one of a kind," one of his students noted. "There are a lot of things he's taught me. My personal favorite is that ''it's hard work but will all be worth it'."
Watch how his forward thinking and positive approach has lifted up these students, some who had never played an instrument, to find greater meaning beyond the music.
