Hello fellow Orffans! ♫ I am so excited and honored to serve as the IOSA President! Orff has made me the teacher I am today, and I can honestly say I would have been lost without it. It’s exciting to see what play can do to a music classroom. As music educators we have the privilege of bringing happiness into our kiddos’ days. How exciting!! We get to help kids explore, create, dance and play! Sometimes the pressure of curriculum can seem overwhelming, especially when the push to fit everything in is more than ever. Don’t let that get in the way of creating magical musical experiences with your kiddos. You are there to facilitate, so let go and let them guide those magic moments. It is inspiring to see what they can come up with! Thank you for allowing me to join you on this musical journey again this year! I wish you the best!! Now go play and have fun!
