I am just finished my tenth year of teaching elementary music in Texas. I’ve been in my current position for five years teaching over 600 students military students in grades PK-6th Grade. I differentiate instruction to include students from a variety of socio-economic backgrounds, students with language barriers, and students in special education.
I also currently serve as the Journalism Club Sponsor in which I teach my students about broadcast journalism through producing a daily news broadcast for the elementary campus and creating videos for school and community events. Students also learn foundations of photography skills and print media.
This year, I have also had the responsibility of creating the yearbook of my campus and completed all accompanying business for the sale and advertisement of the yearbook.
