Mr. Tuckett and the Spanish Fork Jr. High Choirs

Paige Peterson

A new teacher, Mr. Tuckett, is teaching a whole new choir in a whole new school. The Lobo Howl interviewed Mr. Tuckett to find out a bit more about him.  We are sharing this information with you.

Lobo Howl:  How are you adapting to teaching choir at a new school?

Tuckett:  It's just like anything else, after a while you get used to it.

Howl:  Is it hard having new students, at a new school?

Tuckett:  It's not so bad, like I said previously, you get used to it.

Howl:  Do you believe you can fill in the shoe's left behind by the previous choir teacher?

Tuckett:  I don't think so.  There's no way I can fill in those tiny high heels, if they were tennis shoes, maybe.

Howl:  You do enjoy teaching choir at a new school?

Tuckett:  Yes, It's a wonderful new experience.” 

Howl:  How long have you been teaching choir?

Tuckett:  Probably about twenty-seven years, if I had to guess.

Howl:  Wow! That’s a long time.

Tuckett later added that his choirs “have improved greatly” and re continuing to work hard.  At the end of February they will be going to a choir festival, competing in another on May 3rd, and are already preparing for a school concert scheduled for May 15, 2013.

Mr. Tuckett appreciates his student’s hard work.  “They are good, but they can always work harder. The more practice the better you get.” 

With Mr. Tuckett as Spanish Fork Jr. High's new choir teacher, there will be some changes, but with a little adapting on both sides, change won't be so bad.
