About Me
Founder/President of M.U.S.I.C.a nonprofit arts in education and media literacy organization.

Middle school social studies teacher at a K-12 rural school district. Very interested in the merging of art, technology, and media literacy with a central focus on character education and social responsibility. Also interested in educational applications of MySpace and other social networks.

Developing skill-based interdisciplinary lessons and social justice learning activities that stimulate both the heart and mind.

Presenter of "Learning From Lyrics" teacher seminars/workshops and lead a monthly arts integration discussion during the school year at Tapped In. Check out their Calendar for next session and additional events and teacher resources

Check out Once Upon a School and "How to reach and inspire tech-savvy kids" for more information.
Each school year my 8th grade social studies students must research a historic person or event and build a 3D Memorial. During the class presentation they are also required to play a dedication song that pays tribute to the person or event being memorialized.

I posted a few pictures below and many more projects can be viewed here...

In Spring 2008 my students created their own version of the "How Far We've Come" music video by Matchbox 20 using Sony Vegas Video click below to view a sampling...

Ah... just visited your page and loved the article about the tech savvy kids and shared it on my own blog. Also, I'm a fan of the "One Love" music video and Playing for Change. I love that you've integrated music in such a meaningful way with your history students...I'm definitely going to come back to spend more time checking out their work.
