Mrs. Trina Smith
MUSIC ROCKS!!! My name is Trina Smith and I have been teaching music at Declo Elementary for 12 years.
During my job interview I was asked what my main objective would be if I were to be offered the music teacher position. My answer was two-fold.... First and foremost, I would teach the children to LOVE music, and secondly, I would teach them how powerful music is, both emotionally and intellectually, and how it can positively or negatively affect us.
Because I know and understand the power of music, and the impact it has on the brain, I am driven to find songs that teach, and that also reinforce good character traits, good choices, correct conduct, integrity, etc.
As each year comes and goes I find myself wondering if it’s time to move on, however, every year as the summer is coming to an end, I find myself anxious and excited to return. I am truly one of the lucky ones that can honestly say, “I love my job”!
