Richard R. Wright School
2017 Seminar Enrollment: That’s My Song!: Musical Genre as Social Contract
I have been teaching 20 years and am currently the 5th grade math and science teacher at Richard R. Wright Elementary. I applied to the TIP program to challenge and motivate myself as an educator. TIP was the perfect program to do this and UPenn was the perfect place to do it. To date, that was the only class that I took but I keep checking to see if there is another session that will interest me.
The entire experience was exceptional. Not only did I get to be in a class with a world class professor (Dr. Ramsey) but I got to interact with my colleagues in the school district, explore and utilize the facilities of an Ivy League university, and have my unit published in Penn’s library. Participating in TIP was definitely one of the highlights of my educational career.
