Our scholars come from an urban, low socioeconomic area. I teach general music to these lovable kids in grades K-5. My students flourish in movement and collaborative activities. Music class is the perfect place to achieve this!
These kids have grit and heart.
They look out for one another. Despite their various challenges, they come to school every day and give their best. They deserve the best rather than hand-me-downs. We love doing hands-on music making activities, especially while incorporating technology. We focus not only on growing our musicianship skills but 21st-century skills that will prepare them for their futures.
I'm so honored and excited to be chosen to present at this year's national NAfME conference for music teachers but I need help to get there. I will be presenting a session called "Amplify Student Voice with Flipgrid." I plan to introduce my colleagues to Flipgrid which is a free website that students can record response videos. This is quite useful in a music room as students can record their performances.
I recently transferred to a new elementary school.
My new school has a higher special needs population with sub-separate classes. I would like to go to sessions to teach me strategies to support my special learners.
