Welcome to Arts and Humanities! My name is Mrs. Bieker, and I will be teaching the arts this year at Owingsville Elementary. We will be learning all about art, music, dance, and drama. Each month, students will have two weeks of art, then two weeks of music/movement. On Fridays (Drama Friday), they will learn all about drama.
I attended Morehead State University and received both a bachelor's and master's degree of music education. Over the summer, I began my first class (of three) to obtain my Orff certification. In Orff Schulwerk classrooms, children begin with what they do instinctively: play! This approach to teaching integrates music, movement, speech, and drama in a fun, interactive way that relates well to children.
I am very excited to work with all the students at O.E.S., and to have the opportunity to allow students to access their inner creativity.
