My Students

"Let us take our children seriously! Everything else follows from this... only the best is good enough for a child." -Zoltan Kodaly "Tell me, I forget, show me, I remember, involve me, I understand." - Carl Orff

My students are a diverse group of kids who live in a suburb of Columbus, Ohio; despite any challenges they face, students at my school are respectful, hard-working, joyful children.

They improve themselves academically, socially, and emotionally every day, striving to reach their full potential.

My Project

In music class, children begin with what they do instinctively: play! Imitation, experimentation, and personal expression occur naturally as students learn to speak poems rhythmically, sing expressively, and then create body percussion and instrument parts to go along with their songs and poems. By adding tables and stands for some of the instruments we already have in my classroom, we can expand my students' learning opportunities as they become confident, life-long musicians and creative problem solvers.

Currently, students and teachers have to move instruments off of the floor or in and out of closets every time we want to use them.

By adding stands and tables for the instruments, we can ensure the safety of these invaluable resources while making them easier, safer, and faster for students to access. While there are a few stands in the music room that are 30+ years old, they are falling apart and the students are unable to move them independently without risking injury.

The music room is home to over 540 students each week; all resources in our classroom end up impacting the lives of hundreds, or even thousands, of students.
