TEACHING EXPERIENCE

I am the music teacher at White River Elementary School. This year marks my third full year of teaching. Throughout college, I had a variety of music teaching experiences in addition to my academic requirements. I volunteered in my church as the children’s choir director, I taught private voice lessons, I worked as a camp counselor at the Anderson University Music Education camp, and I performed in a variety of university ensembles, musicals, and opera productions.

MY TEACHING STYLE

In my music classroom, children explore music through the Orff Schulwerk (or Orff for short) method of music education. This method is based on things children like to do: sing, chant rhymes, clap, dance, and keep a beat on anything close by. The students use these as a means for learning music by imitating and creating it first, and then reading and writing it later—the same way we all learned our own language. In addition, it is my goal to teach much more than just music - I want children to practice real life skills in my classroom. Responsibility, integrity, team work, leadership, respectfulness, and honesty are just a few of the traits we practiced each week in the music classroom.
