I have taught elementary music, middle school and high school band. I have experience in private as well as public schools. I am currently teaching elementary music in KS and loving every minute! Playing my flute in MIdwest Winds is a highlight of my time away from the classroom. Past Experience: All state adjudicator in AR as well as solo/ensemble adjudicator for state contest.
I follow the Choice Theory style of classroom management. This works extremely well with these music methods: Conversational Solfege and the Orff and Kodaly methods of teaching music.
