Hi! I am so excited that you’ve come to visit my blog! I am a K-5 general music and chorus teacher in central New Jersey. I enjoy instilling in my kiddies a love and appreciation for music and the arts.
Recently, I embarked on a journey to earn my Master’s degree in Brain-based Teaching and Learning through Nova Southeastern University’s BrainSMART program. It is truly an amazing program that mixes cognitive neuroscience with educational research. I can’t even begin to explain how much I have learned in the two classes that I have taken so far. I have been applying certain aspects of what I have learned in my regular classroom before summer break and now in my Preschool Piano class I teach during the summer. My little 4-year-olds are eating it up!! To see preschoolers discuss terms such as inferences, using cues, and making connections with such ease is a dream come true for any educator. In future posts I will be discussing some really cool activities and lessons I did with my preschool kiddies that involves Brain-based teaching. Can’t wait to share it with you!
