My Students

My students come from a variety of different rural backgrounds. These consist of farming, blue collar, and middle class families. Our students are excited to learn new things and our staff, teachers, and administration are all anxiously engaged in improving not only the academic lives of the students but in creating more well-rounded people. They realize that music education is an essential part of that education because they've seen the positive results of music in the lives of our students.

I think it is critically important to find new ways to carry on our district's musical tradition of excellence by creating new and exciting opportunities for our students and by increasing our district resources.

Because of the nature of our small school students are able to participate in a wide range of activities from music to athletics to agriculture and technology. Offering as many opportunities as possible will help to make not only successful students, but successful citizens.

My Project

Students at our school love the ukulele! They work hard during class time to improve their playing and adding more ukuleles will enable all students to perform together.

By adding different types of ukuleles to our classroom, they will add depth to songs and ensemble playing.

This will also help students to develop their aural skills by hearing the different harmonic sounds within the ensemble.

I'm excited about the different opportunities that adding new instruments to our classroom will encourage! Right now students are working in stations to be able to play the ukuleles and if we had more instruments our students could constantly be playing, which leads to creating!
