Teacher Appreciation Week

Performing arts teachers are treated with wonderful messages of support and encouragement. Each day we will share another video.  Check back daily to see a new Teacher Appreciation video!

We wrap up the week with a message from Pinellas County Commisioner Dave Eggers. Councilman Eggers has always been a strong supporter of the Arts and his message of support during this time is a wonderful blessing to our teachers.



Thursday brings greetings from an amazing group of people called the Voice Experience. Sherrill Milnes, artistic director and Maria Zouves, executive director, lead a group of Voice Experience members in sharing appreciation with all our Performing Arts Teachers during this challenging time.


Today you get a double dose of thank you messages. Steve Beaty, president of Dex Imaging and Mark Sforzini, Artistic and Executive Director of the St. Petersburg Opera and Music Director of the Tampa Bay Symphony join us today with wonderful messages for all our performing arts teachers.
