My Students

I am one of two music teachers in an elementary school of 850 students. This means every week, 425 students walk through my doors. The students at my school, Wallace Elementary, exemplify diversity because of it's unique location in the Dallas city limits.

The Wallace student body has a large group of Burmese refugees.

These are strong, positive people despite fleeing ethnic and religious persecution. They work hard with smiles and respect, never mentioning the food, clothing, or school supplies donated to them.

It is more then one group that makes Wallace diverse. We boast a wide array of socioeconomic backgrounds all of which, come together in wolf packs (our mascot) of their unique breeds. Red, Arctic, Timber, and Grey wolves roam our schools and share common traits that transcend superficial differences.

My Project

850 students were given Ipads but no headphones. This is an incredible resource and because I teach music, there are innumerable ways to write, create, and experience music. In many instances,​ this impossible because when students work individually and need to listen critically, they hear 29 other iPads playing at the same time. If a child must listen to a Beethoven sonata and find subtle expression of loud and soft, they will miss the nuances played by a single violin soloist. Please help the students of Wallace elementary experience music in this very personal way by providing headphones for their music class! Thank you very much!
