March Teacher of the Month was Jennifer Martinez of  Bacon Elementary School. She was introduced by her Principal, Joe Horky.  After leading  us in singing she gave an account of how music classes have evolved since most Rotarians took the subject. Activities such as song writing, playing in different keys and building a song on computers were among the many new techniques she mentioned. Ms. Martinez stressed that it is important to meet students where they are, including students of all interests and abilities, and autistic and disabled students. In her classes joyful participation initiates the process of music education.
