The best part of GCC was that without a graduate program, GCC juniors and
seniors often get to do what other school's graduate students would do.
The ensemble conducting I was able to do at GCC prepared me to teach
better than anything else.
You must be willing to move. You cannot limit yourself to searching for a
teaching job in a five-school-district area. In today's current climate here
in Pennsylvania, you may need to move out of the state.
