Christian Ricketts, a major in music education, has known since childhood that he wanted to be a teacher. So, it only made sense to blend that love for teaching with a passion for music. Taking advantage of Stetson's student employment opportunities, he was hired as an admissions counselor for the school of music while also serving as vice president for the Collegiate National Association for Music Education. CNAfME provided an opportunity to work with students and be an advocate for music education. Now, with a degree in hand, Ricketts is looking forward to working in secondary education as a band director, ideally at a middle school.
