I am very excited to be a Music Teacher! I have
always had a huge passion for music and I love being with children. With
music slowly moving it's way out of schools, I hope to show those students I
teach and the community around me, how important music is in their lives.
In the last 18 years, I have experienced many different teachers who all have
had very different teaching techniques.
Some were there only for the paycheck while others were truly inspiring,
helping to involve our way of being with our surroundings.
It was because of these good and bad teachers that I decided to follow
the teaching career; more specifically, a music teacher.
It also helped me to know which teaching philosophies I want to follow
and to incorporate into my music classroom. Using
the Progressivism, Existentialism, and Social Reconstruction Philosophies I can
turn my classroom into an energetic, understanding, and care-free environment.

You can also find my Final Reflection Paper in the E7 section of my portfolio. This reflection discusses the differences between my original teaching Credo and my philosophies now that I have finished my student teaching.
