When I think of who I want to be as a teacher, here is how I would want to summarize it. Dedicated and responsive with proven skills in classroom management, behavior modification and individualized support. Comfortable working with students of all skill levels to promote learning and boost educational success. Serves as role model by using growth mindset to develop young minds and inspire love of learning. High-energy Teacher with solid background educating students in music. Maintains organized and disciplined classroom environments devoted to student learning. Caring and compassionate in addressing individual student needs and promoting positive educational experiences. Enthusiastic Teacher with superb leadership and communication skills. Easily cultivates trusting and productive relationships with students, parents, teachers and administration. Creates, monitors and sustains disciplined school culture of high academic and behavioral standards. As future educator, I want my students to come first and gain the best education possible. A students success is driven by the passion of a teacher who cares about them and supports them. In my classrooms, there will be no students left behind.
When looking back at the experiences I have had, here are some skills I have picked up along the way. One of the major skills I have learned is how to better communicate with not only groups but individuals as well. Putting myself into public events has exposed me to many different types of people and situations. These events involve local music events, leadership camps, and band camps. Other exposer include volunteer jobs at band camps at local school, working at shopping super centers, and volunteering as a music tutor for students that do not quite understand music in general. The next major skill I have acquired is leadership. Over the course of these experiences, I found myself wanting to be more involved. This would lead to leadership meetings and camps to help me learn to tone my skills to take control of a group. Due to this idea, I have become more comfortable with talking and teaching in front of other people. The other major skill I have is the ability to understand the differences in music as far as reading both treble and bass clef. I can transpose notes in the music as well as read concert pitches. I can also play seven different instruments. trombone is the main instrument that I play. I am a brass player and have been for nine years now. Other skills I picked up include time management, classroom management, and building safe classroom environments. I have become really good at building relationships with cooperating teachers and their students.
Though this job does not have much to do with music education or education at all, this job taught me amazing life lessons. At this job, I started at the bottom and worked my way to the top of my department. I started as the cart pusher, proceeded to being a cashier, and then finally the head cashier. This job taught me time management, leadership schools, and communication skills. I learned through the job how to better communicate with the public and individuals. This job involved a lot of stress, but through the hard work I learned how to manage the stress. This allowed me to produce a productive product.
During the summer of 2019, I volunteered to help with a summer band camp. I stepped in as the guest brass instructor as well as serving as a marching tech. The director, Mr. Doug Blevins, moved to the school district as the new head band director. knowing this, I reached out to him to gain more knowledge of teaching small group as well as large groups. Mr. Blevins allowed me to come help with the summer band camp and teach the entire brass section.
As a senior in Harrison High School, I looked for opportunities to grow both musically and teaching. The district starts the band experience in sixth grade and goes through the twelfth grade. As a future music educator, I wanted more experience in the musical world so I asked to help with the sixth grade music program. I became the substitute teacher for a sixth grad percussion class for an entire semester with beginning band students. In saying this I was able to get experience for the future students.
I am currently enrolled at College of the Ozarks in Point Lookout, Missouri. Here at College of the Ozarks, I am studying Instrumental Music Education with a K-12 certification. I am a senior currently and will soon be graduating in the fall of 2022.
As a musician, I feel it is important to also list personal success. In my career, I have made region honor bands for seven years straight, various playing opportunities with professional players, and placed in the John Philip Sousa National Honor Band with trombone. For marching band, I was selected as the section leader and marching tech four years in a row
