Welcome to General music! I am so excited to be teaching at San Marcos this year and know its going to be a great year! Music is my passion. I have been teaching music for nine years now and particularly enjoy teaching at the elementary level.
My Education and Professional Background
I graduated with my bachelor's degree in 2009 from the University of Arizona and with my master's degree from Arizona State University in 2019. I have enjoyed a variety of teaching experiences, including a year at the international school of Bremen in Bremen Gernay.
My Educational Philosophy
I believe music is essential to every child's educational experience, for music can express what word can not and is the doorway to unlocking a child's sense of expression and creativity. I fully believe in the philosophies of Carl Orff and Zultan Kodaly who taught that children learn best by doing. As they experience music in a playful, encouraging environment, they can truly come to understand the world in a whole new light.
