HIXSON, Tenn. (WDEF) – Brian Ailey uses music to reach his students.
The Hixson Middle School teacher helps inspire his kids to get creative.
He loves to let his students be themselves, through music.
“Why music? Why not. Music is the best thing on the planet. Music is a fair and glorious gift of God, and I am so blessed to be able to share my love for music with these students.”
Ailey is the Chorus Director at Hixson Middle School, but he’s actually been a teacher for 30 years.
He has a passion for his job, and helping students.
“They can interpret music through my guidance for themselves. And they do become more creative in here.”
Students say Ailey makes music a fun subject.
His hard work has earned him this week’s Golden Apple Award.
