Heidi (Blish) Welch writes: "I am still teaching music at Hillsboro-Deering High School (this year makes 14 years!), and was honored with being named Best Teacher of the Concord area by the Hippo Press this past spring, as well as being named Music Teacher of the Year by WERZ radio, which gave me the opportunity to conduct "Sleigh Ride" with the Boston Pops at the Verizon Arena in Manchester in December. I was also on campus in November to give a guest lecture in the music department, which was incredible. I am beginning my doctorate in educational leadership this summer, so life is very busy. My son, Noah, just turned two, my daughter, Katie, turned 14, and life is fantastic!"
