What year did you join the Preschool staff? 2019
What class are you teaching this year? Music
What do you consider to be your hometown? Orlando, FL
What education, training, credentials and life experience do you have that helps you in your work with pre-schoolers?
I have been a musician all my life. I have studied piano, percussion, voice, and bassoon but I mostly stick to playing the piano and singing these days. I teach piano lessons and have worked at in church teaching music to children 11 years old and under. My love of music as a way to communicate and entertain helps as I prepare to teach and share music with others.
What are your most important teaching goals for the children in your class?
I want the children to feel the joy of music! I’d love to share with the kids how music can help you learn almost anything. Once you learn to love music, it becomes part of you and can be a friend for the rest of your life.
What do you like most about your job?
I love seeing the children connect with songs. As unique as we are we all have different favorite songs. When you get to know what songs connect with people you know more about them. I love discovering their little personalities through music.
