The Sentinel: High note for a ‘low brass guy’ — APS band instructor finalist for Colorado top teacher

Story excerpt:

"After a district music festival in May, East Middle School band director and instrumental music teacher Jimmy Day went about his usual routine of emailing performance clips to some of his friends and former colleagues. One of his emails went to Biaze Houston, his principal when he first arrived at East in 2017.

'When we perform, I always send her links so she knows the band is still doing well,' he said.

Houston wrote back to let him know it was a coincidence he had reached out — she had just nominated him for Colorado teacher of the year.

In September, Day was announced as one of the finalists for the upcoming award.
