I joined MSMTA because of the wonderful opportunities for my students to perform. It motivates them to prepare fir events and gives them a sense of pride when they complete events. In addition it is a great recruitment tool to show parents that I am a member of a professional organization like MSMTA, this sets me apart from others.
