I had the pleasure of visiting Western Alamance Middle School this afternoon. Safety protocols were clearly being followed throughout the building, but just as important – great teaching and learning was taking place throughout the school – like science investigations using materials that simply cannot be sent home. The last stop on my visit was to Ms. Doss’ classroom where students were learning to identify vocal range types: soprano, alto, tenor, and bass. After a review provided by students, it was my turn to identify the voice range type in a music selection made by Ms. Doss.
Thanks to all at WAMS who made it possible for students to return safely to in-person learning this week – and for keeping great teaching and learning at the center of the effort.
