In this episode I catch up with Zachary Gates – a young music teacher I met at the Texas Music Educators’ Association (TMEA) convention that I attended in February this year. Although Zach has only been teaching for a couple of years, he presented some interesting and innovative technology ideas at the convention. You can tell that he loves what he does!
