“Ms. Rogers has a great rapport with the students and knows her material as well as how to work with this age group. Her use of song and hands-on materials combined with her gift for working with the students makes it a true favorite of mine as a teacher out of everything we do ALL YEAR. “ 

"Sally weaves scientific information about sound into a beautiful, catchy tune that she taught to the children. She seamlessly guides them through a variety of developmentally appropriate activities that connect music and science. Everything builds to a percussion orchestra, where each child can participate!"

 

“I was extremely impressed with the content you presented and your abilities as an educator with kindergarten students.  My students were so engaged and I am sure they took away a lot today….

It’s not easy to take a higher-level topic, such as sound, and bring it to a level that is easy for the students to see AND understand.  You really are a “Master Teaching Artist!” 

Student feedback:

“I learned that sound crashes together and goes in the other direction." 

 

“I remember that sound waves shake and I learned a big word… Compression!"
