My Students

I teach in a highly impacted urban elementary school with a high number of special education and English language learners. Despite the odds against them, my students out-perform other students in similar situations, and I think solid music instruction has been a major factor. Music makes my students come alive!

The area that my school is in has been highly impacted by gentrification, and our families are never sure whether or not they will be able to stay in the area.

I don't think this means they should have any less than students in more stable neighborhoods. My students deserve the best!

My Project

STEAM education seems to be the new future of instruction and my students need some supplies to help launch them into this new era of learning. I would like to offer my students the ability to explore science, technology and sound using the MakeyMakey sets in a small group setting.

Students will be exploring the elements of sound production and technology by creating their own musical input devices using modeling clay and the MakeyMakey devices.

I am excited to bring this new cutting-edge element of instruction into my music classroom!
