My Students

“Education is evolving due to the impact of the Internet. We cannot teach our students in the same manner in which we were taught. Change is necessary to engage students not in the curriculum we are responsible for teaching, but in school. Period.” – April Chamberlain

We have 5 sections for each grade, first - fifth, which makes for a very busy day but I wouldn't have it any other way!

We sing, we play, we move, and now we want TECHNOLOGY! Students love going to the computer lab for music, but with all the important computer testing we do at our school it's hard to find time to bring all the classes to the computer lab.

My Project

I am asking for donations to bring an iPad, case, and headphones into the music room. By bringing technology into our classroom students will have more time to compose, research composers and songs, record themselves singing and playing, and so much more.

This can often end with students waiting until our next class to get a turn.

Your donation will allow students to showcase their different talents and work together in small groups of about 4 - 5 students. One student could be a talented singer or pianist and can record directly on to the iPad. Another could create background tracks to accompany their classmates piece. The possibilities truly are endless!
