I have been teaching K-5 (6) music for 12 years! I love what I do and am always motivated to use new and fresh materials all the time to keep the students and myself excited about learning about and making music.
I believe that everyone can make music and include anyone who wants to dp this in my classroom. I use the Orff approach to teaching music and also love to explore music from around the world. I like to have structure and a routine in our classroom as well as a classroom agreement that I find keeps us all on the same path. I believe technology plays a big part in motivating the 21st century learner and encorporate that in my teaching of music.
Yet to be added
I have a Bachelor of Education and a Bachelor of Music. I also have Grade 10 Royal Conservatory of Music in piano and Grade 9 Royal Conservatory of Music in Voice.
I am lucky enough to work in the Pembina Trails School division in Winnipeg, Manitoba. Music teachers are valued and there are many professional development opportunities that I am able to take advantage of.
