I teach at a wonderful middle school that has been recognized four times as a "school to watch." This is very remarkable since we live in a high-poverty area, and many of our students have difficulty finding support for musical enrichment outside of our classroom.
My students thrive in a student-centered learning environment where they can discover and learn by using our classroom tools and technology.
We have very little room in our classroom budget for anything but basic music needs and instrument repairs.
My school is gaining an entire grade this year! This also means that we are adding new classes for this grade and really taking this new opportunity to add to our curriculum. One of the new classes that I will be teaching is Rhythm and Movement. This class explores music with tools such as the Drumtastic curriculum, boomwhackers and multi-cultural dancing.
In order for our students to hear us while we are exploring these new teaching tools (and having a blast moving around), we need new headset mics and a speaker!
We need our new 5th grade classes to hear all instructions clearly so that they can learn about music while grooving to some awesome beats!
