In music class, I love to expose my students to a wide range of music. We play classroom instruments, learn to read rhythms, move to music, present grade level programs, connect music to children's literature, have school wide sing alongs, and the list could go on and on.
I especially enjoy teaching music "hands on" when we begin playing recorders in 3rd grade. As students progress to 4th-6th grade- they can choose to participate in Honor Choir, Recorder Team and Bell Choir. There are lots of opportunities to make music at Boulder Creek!
I am an Arkansas native- "Whoo-Pig-Sooiee"!!! I have been teaching here at Boulder Creek for 10 years. I have a husband, 2 beautiful daughters and 1 crazy dog! I am also actively involved in the music department at my church. On breaks, my family and I love to visit National Parks. To date, we have visited 75!
I love teaching my students to make beautiful music- and plan to do so for the next 100 years :):)
