Specifically speaking, his professional pursuit is to guide his students to arrive at being able to create and appreciate beautiful music. Once this is achieved, many other goals are spawned or have been altogether realized, and that is what to put simply, makes him tic. Secondary goals of his include educating parents and staff as to what it is his students are setting out to do in his class, how his students are benefitting from their achievements, and how it compliments most if not all of their goals. Mr. Luckey is fortunate that most of the folks he works with have a similar value system of which he subscribes to, and so he believes that many of us educators who are worth our own salt include in our goals a collective overreaching goal, which is to develop our students to be creative, resourceful, and empathetic people.
