Welcome to Music!
Hello and welcome to Music at Centennial Elementary! Students in grades K-6 come to music once a week for a complete education in reading, writing, playing, listening, moving, and singing music! I am very excited to be teaching here at Centennial, and I look forward to welcoming back familiar faces as well as making new friends.
My Education and Professional Background
I have lived in Arizona all my life and attended school in Chandler, Arizona. After high school I migrated a little ways north to Flagstaff and completed my Bachelors of Music Education at Northern Arizona University. I have been teaching since 2014 and love students, music, and music education so much.
My Educational Philosophy
All students can be successful, and all students can learn to express themselves creatively. In music, we will use the concepts and styles that we learn, as well as cooperation, goal setting, and performance, to create beautiful music and share it with ourselves, with one another, and with our global audience. As a teacher, I vow to inspire students to create and express themselves in a safe, respectful, responsible and positive learning environment.
