My Students

I teach 6/7/8th grade band and orchestra south of Seattle where 80% of our students qualify for free or reduced-price lunch. A majority of our students are bilingual and thrive while bringing different cultures into our music classroom. I strive to provide music education that everyone can access, understand, and enjoy.

I came into my new classroom this summer as a second-year teacher, realizing that we are lacking in many materials due to it being a brand new school.

My goal is to create a fun-filled, functioning, and equitable classroom for my students.

I am passionate and determined about providing these kids what they deserve in order to achieve success in the music classroom.

My Project

We are a brand new school with a brand new instrumental music department. We were very lucky to get some new instruments through our district, but many of the smaller and essential items we do not have. These items in this project will allow our percussion students to cover all parts in a piece of music. We have a triangle, but no triangle beater! We have many puzzles pieces missing in our percussion section, and we need your help!

Please help provide my percussion and band students with the equipment they need to cover all parts in a piece of music!

Our percussion students are only getting a partial experience right now having these items missing from our classroom. Please help by giving them what they need to have a well-rounded music education!
