Classroom Music, Choirs and bells

Thanks for Checking in . . . . 
Many thanks to each of you who participate in classroom music activities, in ways like learning Solfege, playing along with the Orff orchestra instruments, or singing like a bird in one of our choirs.  Perhaps you love acting and being in costume for the K-6 Christmas musical, or maybe you put your whole heart into singing in the Treble Choir.

Or is your thing, a ringing those bells ---- some seem pretty heavy at first, but you get the swing of it rather quickly. 
My Rogers Music Making
Presently, I teach classroom music for grades K-6 and direct the choirs and handbell programs.  We have a Treble Choir that includes students in grades 3-6,  and our Christmas production featuring K-6 students.  Our handbell program offers a bell choir to 5th grade students, 6th grade students, and a Jr. High handbell choir.  

My WWVA Music Making
In addition to teaching here at RAS, I teach two classes at WWVA, the academy choir and handbell program. I look forward to watching them grow their music making from Kindergartners to Seniors.

My Background
This is my fifth year teaching for Rogers Adventist School and WWVA.  It is my 33rd year of teaching, in places like Adelphian Academy, Battle Creek Academy, C. F. Richards Jr. Academy and Tri-Cities Adventist School, where I taught everything from Business Education, Physical Education, and Elementary Education, along with choirs, bands, and handbell ensembles.
