There is no music program at the school. No marching band, no chorus, nothing. These kids, like all kids, love music, and it's a shame that they have no outlet to make it. I have some recording equipment, though, and I usually let my best kids stay after and record music.

They are pretty amazing. They make all kinds of stuff and its always impressive. Usually they just freestyle rap, and they make their own beats with their fists on the table. Today they let me join in.

I started banging on the table with them, all of us in a circle. I looked around at all the kids smiling and shaking their heads to the beat and I never felt so proud to be included in something.

I love my kids.
