TEACHING EXPERIENCE

I am a retired elementary music teacher.

MY TEACHING STYLE

When I was teaching, I always wished I had more time for planning listening activities. I also enjoyed singing folk songs with my students and coming up with a countermelody as a second part. These are two areas I focus on now with my store. I think a teacher should try to plan activities their students will love, and that, in turn, will make them better students.
