What music verb did you use today? Create? Sing? Dance? Write? Cooperate? Analyze? Perform? These are a few of the verbs students engage in during general music class with me, Mrs. Horvath. I am very passionate about providing students an educational experience that encompasses all aspects of the wonderful world of music.
My Education and Professional Background
In 1991, I proudly became a teacher in Wisconsin, where I lived, until I moved to Arizona in 2016. I excitedly became a member of the Shumway Leadership Academy family in 2017! I have taught students in grades 4K-8th grade. I received my Bachelor of Music Degree with an emphasis in vocal and general music from Alverno College (Milwaukee Wisconsin) in 1991. Later, I returned to Alverno College and in 2007 earned my Masters of Arts in Education Degree with an emphasis in Administrative Leadership and Instructional Leadership.
My Educational Philosophy
Respectful. Responsible. Problem-Solvers. This is an abbreviated version of my philosophy of education that I keep posted in my classroom. It serves as a daily reminder to all that enter the room of our overall goal. This philosophy fosters an engaged classroom that results in increased student learning and creation. I believe it is my responsibility to use every moment I am with students to encourage and inspire their love for learning, music, creativity, solutions, and kindness.
