speakerWhat People Are Saying

I take each student through a step by step process of achieving an understanding of the task at hand. When I see that a goal or objective is not obtained, I revise the lesson until the students demonstrate an understanding and mastery of the objective. -- Kathryn Drake

She came to the student teaching experience with a strong knowledge of the elementary music curriculum using the Kodaly approach. Not only were her lessons extremely detailed and well thought out, but they were also creative, educational lessons that the students enjoyed. -- Cooperating Teacher

Ms. Drake exhibited her musical knowledge and pedagogical skills in the way she stitched together all of the musical materials and learning activities to allow the children to experience and internalize the musical objective of the day. She is constantly aware of student responses to the lesson activities and offers additional explanation or additional opportunities to perform an activity so that all children complete the activity successfully. -- Supervising Faculty
