Jessica, Music Teacher, Oakdale Elementary
My class has been so obsessed with writing math raps, songs, and parodies that we now have a scheduled day of the week as performance day. The kids called it Portable Idol or Kids Factor and they have a rubric for me to use to judge them. Thanks for awakening their musical creative side.

Awesome, active engagement from all students. Every student had a part or job to do. Alden was fantastic! He challenged and motivated every student in a fun and meaningful way.
