“If you had told me I’d be writing books after I retired from teaching, I would have laughed at you,” said Ann Funkhouser, sitting on her front porch in Wardensville.
But that’s exactly what she has been doing.
Funkhouser has published her first book “Teaching Music in Rural West Virginia” and is working on a second book.
“Teaching music in rural areas is different than in urban or more populated areas because of the lack of equipment and lack of resources,” she said. “But I think this book will help any new teacher because it offers classroom management ideas and lesson plans.”
