My Students

My students are artist, thinkers, musicians, scientists, engineers, and all around amazing students. They are so eager to learn new things and take that learning and apply it to everyday life. We have all embraced the responsibility of learning and know that our futures will be brighter because of it. They are special due to their unique personalities and their love of music. I serve 250 AMAZING students in 4th-6th grade in Inman, South Carolina. They walk through the classroom door coming from different races, backgrounds, socioeconomic statuses, and learning abilities. We are a family; we work as a team to reach our goals.

My Project

A well-rounded and quality K-12 education includes music and the arts. Many studies show the effects of the arts on student's performance in schools. By providing these ukuleles, I want to provide my students a way to excel and grow in other academic areas. These ukuleles will make a difference in my student learning by providing more opportunities for them to explore various instrument families. I want to be able to provide opportunities for my students with strings instruments. These instruments will help provide my students with a quality education and help them to widen their musical knowledge. This will help my students to be well-rounded and musical adults in the future.
