I've been teaching Elementary Music for seven years. The first three years were in a Pre K-2nd setting,then three in a 1-6 setting, then one teaching in a Title I K-8 school. I have had the privilege to children in rural, urban, private, public, high-income, low-income, and Dual Language settings.
I have a Kodály-inspired curriculum with influences of Orff as well. My students sing, play, listen, dance, move, read, write, and improvise in music class.
I have presented in my district for creating engaging flipcharts and lessons using interactive whiteboards. I'm fortunate to be the recipient of a grant that pays full tuition for my ESL Certification.
I graduated from Illinois Wesleyan University in 2010 with a Bachelor's in Music Education. I received my Kodaly Level One Certificate from DePaul University in 2011, and am eager to earn all of the Kodaly and Orff levels. I have earned my ESL Certification from Northern Illinois University.
