Conejo Adventist Elementary Student Starts Handbell Choir

A student at Conejo Adventist Elementary School (CAES) took on a significant role this year. Riley, an eighth grader at CAES, started up a handbells choir for the 1-and 2-grade class and teaches every week. Riley started playing concert band bells in the fifth grade. “One day, when I was talking with my friends, we started talking about handbells and I remembered how fun it was and thought to myself, I could teach handbells,” Riley said. According to her teachers, Riley gives each student a high-five and complements them by name at the close of every handbell practice. “I learned that encouragement is a really big part of teaching,” Riley added. Wise words, Riley, and bravo!





“I learned that encouragement is a really big part of teaching,” said Riley, an eighth grader at CAES who teaches the 1-and 2-grade handbells class. “When you are older, you can learn from someone being kind of tough and straightforward with you, but when you are younger, you need a lot of encouragement to keep learning.”
