(KSL News) If you think listening to your child practice their clarinet is painful, imagine spending your entire day helping kids improve on their chosen instrument.
A band teacher in Farmington makes it look easy. His students nominated him for a High 5.
Heath Wolf is one of those teachers who has a positive impact on the lives of his students. He seems to have an infinite amount of patience and manages to inspire his music students at Farmington Junior High to work hard.
By helping them achieve musical goals, he's helping them experience success. That hasn't gone unnoticed by his students or their parents.
Student Taelor Bennett said, "We just love Mr. Wolf. He's always believed in us, that we can accomplish all of our songs. He's been there for us, and he's taught us so much."
Mr. Wolf says the credit really goes to the students.
"I've just got a great bunch of kids here," he said. "All the credit should go to them; it shouldn't go to me. I'm just doing the job the best I can, and they make me look good."
