I believe that every child has dynamic talent in creating art and with guidance and support they will soar! MY EDUCATION I received my Bachelors of Science in Geography from Western Kentucky University and my Masters of Education in Counseling from Texas Southern University. Throughout my educational experience I was also fortunate to study abroad in Peterborough, Canada at Trent University and Jalapa Veracruz, Mexico

Yolanda Sanders

As a music teacher, I hope to motivate students to do their best and extend their own personal limits. My vision for my music classroom is one where students are learning to appreciate all kinds of music from different genres. Where students are learning about the great master composers and are being introduced to the foundations in music. I want a classroom environment where students feel safe enough to express themselves through movement and song. I use a variety of teaching methods and instructional activities to engage students in the learning process. I try to establish and maintain an excellent rapport with students, parents, and colleagues alike.

I am thrilled to share my love of art and self-expression with my students! I studied sculpture at the University of Houston, and I have been involved in the Houston arts community for over ten years. In addition to making and teaching art, I enjoy playing guitar and piano, cooking, camping, and spending every possible moment with my wife, my son, and my dog, Bittle.
