My Students

My kids have grown up so quickly, they're resourceful and full of life. They work hard in school and most have responsibilities at home.

They are always eager to help one another.

I constantly catch them stopping what they're doing to go help a fellow student. It is truly an honour just being part of their triumphs.

My Project

I'm a science teacher by trade but I often use music in my class for demonstrating waves, memorizing principles, or just to get a laugh here and again. I teach my students to search for the science behind everything. We're a small rural school without a music program, and with students at home, there is no better time to get their creativity fueled with music.

Teach 'Science' with the 'Sound of Music.' Hands-on activities are essential for development, and junio guitars will give my students an outlet at home for creativity, patience, as well as a common thread to share with our small community.
