Ms. Breighley Sexton
Hello McBride Community!
I'm so excited to see you and your wonderful students again for the 2018-2019 school year! Feel free to drop in and say "hi" in portable 4 when you have a moment.
A little about me: I grew up in the area (Portland native!) and went to school in the Centennial School District. After getting that sweet diploma, I attended the University of Portland, getting my BA in Music Education. I taught K-12 music in Alaska, before returning to the Portland area to work with you all! This will be my fifth year at McBride Elementary.
This year in music, your students will be singing, playing instruments, and learning important concepts, terminology, and techniques. In second and fourth grades, we'll de doing musicals. We will also be doing "learning shares," in which PE and music present what your students are learning in our classes along with your student's classroom teacher. Our after school choir is 83 students this year (yay!) and we'll be doing a variety of performances throughout the year.
It is my goal to instill your children with a love of music and feeling prepared to pursue the next level of musicianship in middle school.
If you have any questions or concerns throughout the school year, do not hesitate to contact me by phone, email, or in person. See you all soon!
