Music Teachers Professional Growth

Eight of the Hilliard elementary music teachers got together to learn folk dances. Professional growth is a priority for Hilliard City Schools. When teachers work together to learn more we are able to ensure our students grow each day, and that every student is Ready for Tomorrow. Dance is a key part of the performing arts curriculum of teaching students to communicate a response to music using dance, drama, or visual art. Students learn to recognize organizational elements, symbolic expressions, and visual or auditory imagery that communicate meaning, and place in cultural and historical context.

I’ve been asked several questions about our most recent calamity days. It seems that the decision making process is a bit mysterious to some – especially the students who follow me on Twitter. There is no mystery – we put safety first, gather all available information, and make the best decision possible at the time.
