Teaching music at the middle school level, private students and administrative work has consumed Mr. Glenn's time. His goal is to facilitate an exemplary education for all children and create an environment that will enhance their ability to excel academically and musically while developing good character. The primary goal is to focus on the Texas Education Agency. Teachers who want to teach music in the public classroom will be given the opportunity to share with students the joy of music. The plan will be to assist teaches in the certification process of TEA along with the MTNA certification.
In his personal time, Mr. Glenn enjoys playing chess, basketball, football and riding his bike. He loves to bowl and exercise.
