Last year I quickly adopted my friend Becky’s idea of creating an autobiographical mix as a gift idea. It’s fun to make, instantly personalized, and entertaining when you get other friends involved.
What a great way to save a few pennies on Christmas gifts, too.
Here’s my mix for 2011:
Man in the Mirror by Michael Jackson – I gave a lesson on this song at one point, too and really feel it sums up my first teaching position.
I Never Told You by Colbie Caillat – One of my 8th graders sang this as part of a presentation she gave last spring. It was the most beautiful performance I’d ever witnessed and brought me to tears.
The Tracks of My Tears by Dolly Parton – I am a recently converted Dolly fan. Sorry.
Chicken Fried by Zac Brown Band – Really love this song because of this line: “pair or jeans that fit just right…”
Wild World by Cat Stevens – Because it is.
