I am very excited to start teaching music here at Galveston Elementary! I believe that learning music is similar to learning a new language, except we learn to express what words cannot. The more we speak the musical language, the more we will learn about ourselves and others. I look forward to making music with you all!
My Education and Professional Background
I graduated from Arizona State University with a BA in Music Education. I completed my student teaching at Anderson Junior High and have also worked with the Basha High marching band as a music technician. I am proficient in both clarinet and piano.
My Educational Philosophy
I believe that all students are capable of learning. As an educator, I am responsible for accommodating diverse learning styles by modifying instruction to enhance their experience. It is my role to provide students with a safe and supportive environment to take risks and understand that personal growth is continuous, and knowledge is endless. Through their own personal journeys, these students will learn to develop self-confidence and expand their abilities to create new endeavors. I feel that educators should strive to keep students actively engaged in learning, by providing opportunities that are personal and meaningful to them. Most importantly, I believe educators are role models in helping students grow as well-rounded individuals and I do accept to live up to that expectation.
