My Students

Hans Christian Anderson once said, "Where words fail, music speaks." Many students in middle school are self-conscious about singing in their general music classes due to the challenge of changing voices.

To allow their music to speak, my students need other outlets for their voices to be heard.

My students range from grades six through eight. My kids come from suburban neighborhoods, rural farms and public housing. My kids come from a small geographic region, but they have a vast array of life experiences. I have personally purchased many things for my music classroom such as music, piano keyboards, and small drums in order to give my students the opportunity to have a hands-on musical experiences. Over the years, my classroom has developed into a hands-on creative learning space which is used for a variety of classes from music to theater! It is my hope to allow my students to have the best music experience possible and to experience the music of all of the cultures of the world, as well as all that the world has to offer!

My Project

Resources, such as ear buds and computer mice, will help to make online learning easier for our students. While our school is 1:1 on Chromebooks, many students face distractions while learning at home. Ear buds will help to alleviate distractions, allowing students to focus on the task at hand- which is online learning. Computer mice will assist students with online lessons such as those assigned in music and art classes, in which using the touch pad on the Chromebook may create challenges. We are all in this time of online learning together! These resources are essential is helping our students to overcome any challenges that they may face until we return to school!
