"It is very important to me that my students feel that my classroom is a community of belonging. For middle schoolers, especially in the arts, the journey begins with honoring one's own strengths, individuality, and creativity. I equip my students with structure for individual discipline as well as giving them access to rich, enjoyable musical experiences." — Anna Hennessy, M.M., Orchestra Teacher and 2022 Golden Apple Award Recipient
