TEACHING EXPERIENCE

I have taught in Chicago Publics School for 16 years during my tenure with Chicago Public schools; I have served in many roles and capacities. As a department chair for two high schools and the Non-core chair for another High School as well as the liaison for Common Core, I have facilitated professional development for all staff on a variety of topics from using technology in the classroom to creating and using graphic organizers as well as informational sessions on Common core curriculum in the Arts. I sat on the advisory council for the creation of the Arts Education plan and the addendum for teacher evaluation that followed the plan’s adoption. I have been on the staff of the All-city Performing Arts groups first as a volunteer, then a section leader and finally an associate conductor for the Elementary chorus. I have served as a co-teacher for the Gallery 37 Advanced Arts program and program coordinator for the performing Arts department. I have served Chicago Public Schools as an educator as well as an activist for arts education as a school based Arts Liaison and as a District Arts liaison for Network 11.

MY TEACHING STYLE

For my General music appreciation classes my teaching style is eclectic, but I use a three touch system in which the student are given a reading passage, view a film documentary followed by learning to sing and or play a representative sample. I have created documents that reinforced comprehension, verbal and oral literacy to support reading and writing as well as introduced student to many musical art form and genre through aural listening. I believe in teaching the history of the musical genre side by side the music, so that student can gain a clear understanding of the times and artist in which the music was created.

HONORS/AWARDS/SHINING TEACHER MOMENT

NASPAAM - Honoree for a workshop presentation given on the history of African american Music through song.

MY OWN EDUCATIONAL HISTORY

I am a graduate of Chicago State University and American College of Education with degrees in Secondary music and Curriculum and Instruction respectively.

ADDITIONAL BIOGRAPHICAL INFORMATION

Much of the work that I have created and /or assembled were based in the needs of urban students to bridge the gaps in literacy and music. In an effort to meet administration policy and creatively express music , I created a program that I believe I’ve balanced the exploration of music with the demands for improved literacy for urban students. I am most passionate about students of color being provided opportunities to explore all avenues of learning.
