This is my 20+ year as an elementary special needs teacher in central Illinois. I've always written songs for my own enjoyment, but I had never had the opportunity to record any of them until Apple introduced Garageband.

I love using music in my classroom to promote curriculum. Unfortunately, there's not always a song available when you need one. It is that very problem that lead me to start writing and recording songs for the classroom. Over the years I have written and recorded eleven songs that I use for a unit on peace and for our school-wide behavior program.

Like any educator, I love to share things. Please feel free to use the songs I've uploaded with your children at school, or at home. You can also check out my "Songs For Peace Kids" page on MySpace.
