Hello students and families!
My name is Thomas Stevning-Roe (but you can call me Mr. Roe for short) and I am the new vocal music teacher at Tri-City United Le Center Elementary and Middle School.
A little bit about myself: I recently graduated from the University of Minnesota - Twin Cities with a Bachelors in Vocal Music Education. My student teaching was at Irondale High School in Mounds View, MN and Linwood-Monroe Arts PLUS School in Saint Paul, MN. Through these experiences, I have started to develop a teaching style centered around Orff and Kodaly theories for general music education. My choral philosophy attempts to fuse Western choral music with the singing traditions of many other cultures.
Sometimes traditional choir is not for everybody, but I truly believe that the musical experience belongs to everyone. My goal for this year is to find a type of music for each student to enjoy.
I am very excited for the upcoming year of learning and getting to know each and every one of you!
