My YouTube channel, Super Short Science Songs, offers a sampling of the dozens of songs of songs I have written as mnemonic devices to help middle school students. When learners sing and perform motions, this total physical response (TPR) makes new vocabulary almost unforgettable! I’ve had former students share how much my songs helped them in high school classes and even request a new print-out of the lyrics to share with their new classmates and teacher.
Though silly songs are not necessarily appropriate for other audiences, the selection of work I’ve posted on YouTube helps illustrate the following:
- I take note of learners’ needs and go above and beyond to meet them
- I am creative, fun-loving and diligent
- I am a MS Office ninja! You’ll see examples of work completed using Paint, Movie Maker, PowerPoint and others
