I am in my 5th year teaching elementary music. My first four years were spent teaching K-2, but this school year I have decided to begin a new job to broaden my experience. I now teach K-6 general music at a brand new STEAM charter school. We focus on integration and project based learning and the arts play a central role in the education of our students. I love this environment and I can't wait to share some of the awesome ideas that have been inspired since beginning this new adventure!
This past school year I stumbled upon all the great Kodaly resources here on TpT and have mostly used this approach with some Orff influence. My number one goal is for students to experience and participate in the music-making process in order to develop individuals who have the skills and confidence to be producers of music and not just consumers. I also implement project based learning and do many integrated lessons with core teachers.
