As you can see I spend a lot of time on and with my music.
This is my section!!
|My name is Jay Wentworth, I am
studying to be an elementary educator at Western
Michigan University. I grew up in Battle Creek, MI and went to
Franklin elementary school. From then I continued my education at
Southeastern Junior High school. After that I preceded to the Battle Creek
area Mathematics and science center, and Battle Creek Central high school.
I dropped out of The BCAMASC to join more band classes to pursue my love
for music, and teaching. I went to Western with intent to study elementary
music education. Finding that I was too interested in having fun with
music instead of practicing four hours a day I switched to just elementary
education, I could not have made a better decision. I am now engaged and a
junior in my 2nd smester at Western. I enjoy playing in the marching band
and pepband, and am looking forward to being a section leader and lead
soloist next year for the marching band.
So why not go into music? Tried that, I didn't have any fun at all, you see I am like a big kid, and that is what I will always be like. I don't like to be closed minded and I felt like the music school was closing me off. Teaching children allows me to express myself as a teacher and a learner, it is my true passion, I am glad I happened to run into it at the time I did.
