This week’s #TeacherTuesday is the brains and creative spark behind Wissahickon Middle School’s extraordinary musicals, and also a chorus and general music teacher who’s been teaching at the school for 25 years.
Sue Brown’s work demonstrates that music is integral to a well-rounded education. “I have watched students grow from shy, quiet sixth graders into confident, outgoing eighth graders singing solos, and it just amazes me,” she says. “Directing chorus and the musicals allows me to see students shine in a way that a lot of their teachers and classmates don’t always have a chance to see” and she is “in awe of their talents and abilities at this age.”
This dynamic teacher says, “I hope that my students find chorus and drama to be a place where they can be themselves and express their excitement for music, whether it be as a performer, or maybe helping with lights and scenery.”
Who else generates that creative spark in their students? Let us know and we’ll feature them in an upcoming #TeacherTuesday.
