Stephanie Schwartz Newton

Welcome to Music!
 
My name is Stephanie Schwartz Newton and I have been fortunate to teach music at IKE for the last 20 years.  I hold a Bachelor of Science in Music Education (K-12 Vocal and Instrumental Music) from Emporia State University and a Master Degree in Education from Baker University.  
 
I went to college to be a high school band director and enjoyed a couple years teaching at that level.  I decided after that experience,  I needed to be at the elementary level to give some fundamental instruction so those kids can success in music.  
 
I am certified in Orff-Schulwerk Level I (Baker University), Level II & III (University of Las Vegas) and my Masters Level Off with Joust (University of Memphis).
 
Besides using Orff-Schulwerk style for teaching music, we use the Music Curriculum Quaver's Marvelous World of Music which all students have access to at home via www.quavermusic.com.
