Libby Cavanagh (Music Teacher, Kindergarten Teacher, Creator of Kidz “n” Treble)
I’ve been an elementary school teacher for 30 years, and a choir director for 20 years. In my Kindergarten and elementary classes, I’ve always taught my curriculum through music and dance. Students internalize, more completely, a math strand or a reading strategy if music is integrated. On a personal level, I feel more comfortable explaining an instruction to students through song, dance, and drama. Music makes me enjoy teaching more and my students enjoy learning more! Because of music, I’ve had a successful career in teaching.
