First of all, my apologies for dragging this issue up again, but I'd really appreciate your advice (as I listen to the wind batter my house and half fear for my life). In my current location, there are very few teachers working within schools to deliver primary music. It isn't really something which has been addressed here yet and I personally think it is a shame. I do enjoy primary teaching, but I am a music specialist and I miss teaching music. At the risk of sounding cliched and cheesy, music is all I've ever done. I really think that there is a gap in skills of pupils heading up to high school and I'd like to try and address this. Somehow. I had the idea of writing around to the primary heads, secondary heads of music and primary music co-ordinators, to ascertain their opinions on said issue, but I wondered whether people thought this was a good idea or not. The problem is job stability (I bought a house last year). I have just been offered another year at my current school, if I want it (which would be my 4th year of teaching). I know I could bear it out for another year if I made the decision to stay put, but recently, I have been thinking more towards my ideas for primary music and teaching shouldn't be about 'making do'. I also don't think it would be entirely fair to the class I would inherit, knowing that it wouldn't be my first choice of job description (couldn't think of another word). On the other hand, I'm not primary trained but seem to have managed to pick things up relatively well, considering it's me (steep learning curve). The other thing is there are currently no other jobs of a music nature (no peri or secondary jobs) available at the moment. Do I go all out to convince the primary heads etc that having a music specialist would be a good idea (I'm already in the 2nd draft of a fairly lengthy letter) or do I let the 10% sensible part of my brain tell me to go for relative stability? Advice very much appreciated. Thank you very much.
