You may think you have heard everything there is to hear from millenials, but my friend, you would be incorrect. The Millenial Music Teacher is about my adventures (and misadventures) in music education.
It all started when I asked myself “Where are all the other young music teachers like myself?” Granted, I met some colleagues in the field when I was in college, but I went to a small school, in which many of my classes were me, myself, and I. Being in such a small program, and seeing that other education majors do not share the same struggles that fine arts people endure, I found few people to relate to in college. I created this blog to share my thoughts and to learn more from other colleagues in the field. Seeing as I do not claim to know everything there is to know about music education, I constantly seek constructive criticism to guide future teaching.
My name is Sarah Sheehan, and I have a certificate in K-12 Music Education with a 9-12 Mathematics endorsement. I completed my degree at the University of St. Francis in Illinois in December of 2015. Currently, I teach K-8 music in a one-school district. My classes include K-5 general music, 6th-8th choir, and 6th-8th musical theatre.
