This rhythm test challenges students to understand rhythmic notations, not simply memorize them. It is a great way to gage how well your music students truly understand how music is notated.

TEACHING EXPERIENCE

3 years of teaching music in Chattanooga, TN

MY TEACHING STYLE

Working at an intercity school has shown me how much work it takes to keep students engaged. I have found that students in my school do not have the support system at home that students from other areas do, therefore, their drive to succeed is not as profound. My main focus is student engagement, I utilize a lot of techniques including no opt out and so forth to keep student engagement high. I also am very energetic when I teach making sure that my voice does not become monotone which also helps with student engagement. One of my other main focuses is my relationship with the students. I have found that students in intercity schools behave for two kinds of people: people they are scared of, and people they like. I know for a fact that I am not an intimidating person at all. So my approach is to simply be involved in their school life. They need to know that I care about them and their success. This helps a lot with classroom management.

HONORS/AWARDS/SHINING TEACHER MOMENT

I won three scholarships while attending collage. One being for excellence on music theory, one for outstanding junior, and one for best student participation in Savannah Winds. I also was inducted into the honors society known as Phi Kappa Phi.

MY OWN EDUCATIONAL HISTORY

I was home schooled all throughout grade school and attended college at Armstrong Atlantic State University in Savannah, GA

ADDITIONAL BIOGRAPHICAL INFORMATION

I love middle schoolers, granted they look funny, act funny, and smell funny, they are some of the most impressionable kids because of what age they are.
