My name is Michelle Wade and this is my 7th year of teaching with Saraland City Schools. I teach general music at Saraland Early Education Center(K-1) and Saraland Elementary School(2-5) .
One of my favorite things about my job is getting to teach the kids from their first day of music class in kindergarten to their last music class in 5th grade. It is a JOY to watch them grow as musicians! My goal is to inspire students to reach their full potential and become contributing members of society.
I am very passionate about choir programs and it has been my joy to direct a 53 member, auditioned Show Choir program at SES, along with a recently developed international choir program: Mobile International Children's Choir.
My goal with choir is to teach children the basics of how to read music, encourging them to celebrate the beauty of diversity, and provide them with multiple avenues to increase their confidence and performance abilities as they develop a love and appreciation for the arts.
