TroyPetersMusicThis is only my second year at the @TMEA Convention, but I don't think I'll ever get used to how gigantic it is! Whoa...

zserratoLunch with some of my district colleagues. I really enjoy TMEA and the learning opportunities that are available. 


LorizzleLife without music is nothing. TMEA has reminded me once again where my love is.<3

klight220One of my #TMEA goals is to get as many free pens as I can at the booths.

jameshickey2900I so deeply wish I could bring a few students to the annual @TMEAconvention. The exhibit hall feels like you're *inside* the music.
