My Students

I have the luxury of teaching numerous enthusiastic middle schoolers each day. As a music educator, I want to expose my students to as much as possible. Music is the vehicle that helps me shape these young minds.

Many middle school students are trying to find their niche; my class allows them to express themselves in a judgement free environment.

My students are very self-motivated and have a genuine desire to grow and learn. I teach students from grades 6-8th. Our school has half receiving free or reduced-price lunch. With your support, we can take what we do to the next level!

My Project

With Covid-19 becoming increasingly prominent in the United States, HEPA UV sanitizing air purifiers will help ensure that my students are breathing clean air. We are lucky that my school district provides some funds, however we have been told that we can not use these funds for air purifiers. Student, parents, and teachers are all nervous about returning to school in a couple of weeks. I think this small step will help them return more safely and more comfortably for all parties.

Please consider donating to help us achieve cleaner air for my students!

Music is an important part of students' curriculum and I want my students to be able to safely enjoy this part of their education.
