If we were a symphony orchestra, we're getting warmed up.

When I step back and observe the classroom, I get the distinct feeling that what I see is only the very beginning.  This is followed by an even stronger feeling that once all is in place and operating smoothly, we will have the effect of a full symphony orchestra - working harmoniously and beautifully together.  We are almost there...
