I just love how, if you give kids a chance (no matter what the age), they will think outside the box and come up with something that an adult would never even conceive of. 
 This is a great example from Slingerlands Elementary.  Teacher Ann Bacher invited me back in to help create a little musical tribute to the work of Dr Martin Luther King.
They came up with the song and the concept before I even got there.   I never would have thought of this in a million years, and they're only 2nd graders!  Take a listen.

Phenomenal, guys.  Thanks for having me in.

And btw- Congrats to Ann Bacher who is retiring this year after more than 30 years of dedicated service to education.  I can definitely tell from working with her that she will be sorely missed, for sure!
