Congratulations to our November Pin It to Win It Winner - Michael Vincent!
We are pleased to announce our December winner for our Pin It To Win It contest! A big congrats to Michael Vincent - a first year music teacher in Arkansas. What first struck us about Michael's Pinterest board is the short write-up describing his position as a music teacher:
"I am a first year teacher in a school in Arkansas where I teach band, choir, and general music! We may not have a ton of supplies but we have a lot of great musical students. I love West Music products and have found great success with students using these quality products! I think a zip code should not define a student's education and especially should not limit a student's musical experiences!"
Michael then proceeded to fill his board with a variety of West Music products, lesson ideas, and classroom practices. Most notable was the variety in pins - he included mariachi instruments, print music, and movement materials. We hope Michael can continue his hard work in the classroom and continue to inspire his students with a $100 West Music gift certificate!
