What would you say is/are the most important thing(s) you believe in as an art teacher?
I believe the arts inspire, stimulate, and develop the student’s imagination. I believe the arts can help each student toward their development in school and their academic success.
What is your greatest contribution to your students, your profession, and to the Arts?
I try to relate the importance of teaching life skills and building self confidence through music. I try to treat each student as if they were my child and hope to fulfill their lives a little more by creating musical skills.
I am extremely grateful to be at
. The school has always had
a strong musical tradition and our community supports band to the fullest. It
has been a privilege to teach for our Principal, Mrs. Tina Recchi, whom is the
biggest supporter of the arts I have ever been associated with. Ramblewood Middle School
