To my new Eagle family:
My name is Brian Best, and I am delighted to introduce myself to you as the new director of bands for Atascocita High School. I am thrilled to serve as the new leader of this fine band program - one that contains rich tradition and exceptional standards for pride and excellence. My family and I understand the enormous shoes that I will fill, and I am motivated more than ever to make Atascocita High School my life's greatest work.
I was raised in the Huffman area not too far from Atascocita, and I remember the daily drive through the area for groceries when there was nothing on FM 1960 except for trees and a Kroger. Almost 30 years later, the Atascocita community looks a lot different than it did back then. Our great town is constantly growing and forever changing. Change is an inevitable part of life, but one aspect of Atascocita that has never changed is the PRIDE in our community. We love Atascocita, as do many of our family members, as we have had family members graduate from Atascocita High School. The opportunity to teach in the area where I am originally from and currently call my home is simply a dream come true.
My students and parents will learn quickly that I operate on a vehicle of positive energy. Band should be a lot of fun, and our kids will be receiving a leader who greets them every day with a smile and a high-five. It is my hope that all of us together - band members, staff, community members - will join me on board this great vehicle of positive energy as we strive for the highest excellence. We are so much more than a military marching band - we are an award-winning concert band, jazz band, percussion ensemble, and chamber music soloists and ensembles. There is so much to celebrate with the Atascocita High School band program, and it is my greatest pleasure to join the Eagle family and work with you all.
PRIDE is 100% motivation, dedication, and self discipline in everything we do. I am so proud to be a new member of the Eagle family, and I can’t wait to meet you all at Meet the Director Night.
All the Best,
Director of Bands, Atascocita High School
