What do you love about Shipley?
Shipley students are not afraid to speak their minds and give their own opinions! Frequently, students will come up with better ways to sing a song (with new hand movements, changed words, adding harmonies) and we frequently make lasting changes to the song. It is amazing to see them gather a sense of ownership in their musicianship and learning.
What inspired you to choose education?
The value of music is so clear in our world - life-long music learners start fostering that love at a young age. I chose to teach Lower School music because I think it is an amazing opportunity to get to influence the lives of every student at the School.
