UCCS RECEIVES GRANT FOR NEW MUSIC INSTRUMENTS Unity has instruments! The scholars could not be more excited. Our music teacher, Ms. Wulff, has recently received new Orff instruments. These instruments are part of the Orff approach. This approach founded by Carl Orff, combines music, movement, drama and speech into lessons. "With these new instruments, we will be able to start an Orff ensemble, organize a bucket band, and also help students with dexterity and coordination," said Ms. Wulff. Ms. Wulff has big plans to integrate music into our curriculum to continue to help our scholars grow and expand.
OUR BEGINNING TEACHER OF THE YEAR NOMINEE Every year North Carolina recognizes a beginning teacher with the award of Beginning Teacher of the year. This year Ms. Sheila Goad nominated one of our 2nd grade teachers, Ms. Christina Wunder, for this honor. Ms. Goad says, "Ms. Wunder strives to make learning fun for her students. Parents can feel how much she cares and wants to see all her students succeed." Congratulations to Ms. Wunder on this fantastic accomplishment! (see page 2 for Ms. Wunder's reaction)
How did you feel when you found out Ms. Goad selected you?
ONE ON ONE with Ms. Christina Wunder . . .
1. When I found out Ms. Goad selected me, I felt very honored for this award! At first I was a bit overwhelmed with being in the spotlight, but I am very proud of my accomplishment! I have put a lot of hard work into my teaching.
2. How did this journey begin? I started with Unity in the beginning as an Instructional Assistant! I was in kindergarten and then moved to second grade. When I started at Unity, I began taking graduate courses to get my teaching certificate and license. I had the opportunity in the second year to teach as I was completing my student teaching and finally last year had my very first full year of teaching with second grade!
3. What makes UCCS special to you? I love Unity! The staff and students at Unity make teaching such a pleasure. Unity's curriculum has a lot of rigor that allows the students to really dive deep into their learning. Unity is so special because of the connections built here between everyone; I feel I am part of a family!
