My Students

As a teacher in a low-income/high poverty school district, my students are faced with several challenges both in and out of the classroom. They face so many challenges in their daily lives and my goal is to provide them with a sense of purpose.

My students are very clever and spontaneous.

They like to move, they love to create and love lots of positive attention. Many of them are being raised in single parent households and receive a free lunch based on their socioeconomic status. From the minute they walk in the door of my classroom, I focus on their potential and growth while they are with me. I can't control their lives at home; however, the only thing I can control is the short time that I see them. By doing this in a creative and positive way, I am hopeful to inspire even our earliest learners to continue on a path of academic excellence.

My Project

One area of struggle for our students is reading. This magazine subscription will give students an opportunity to not only sing songs but read about current artists and music that they might recognize. By allowing students to read about current topics and subjects as well as learning music content is really teaching the best of both worlds in cross-curricular setting.

This will help them to bridge the gap between "old" classical style music and current music and musicians that they can relate to.

The content of these magazines contain lessons, tips, practice sheets, sheet music, songs and games that are perfect for elementary students to learn to love to music. This subscription also contains the music and interviews from current artists.
