For the past 12 years, I have had the pleasure of teaching and learning in Palm Beach county, Florida. Our school district is large and servers a diverse and culturally rich student population. I see the big picture of education, as I have taught Kindergarten, 1st, and 5th grades in elementary school, as well as, 6th - 8th in middle school, and 9th - 12th in high school. In secondary, my experience is in teaching English/Language Arts and Physical Education.
I believe in more deeply engaging students in learning through the power of music and media. Music, video, or art is incorporated into my lessons each day. It make learning more of a pleasure, reduces anxiety, helps students to focus. My students love making connections between the music and media they love to what they are learning about in class. Learning is more meaningful and motivating with music.
