Now, in order for me to be able to teach youhow to sing like a Pro, I'd better have achieved professional status myself, and Ialso better show you that I have students that have gone from amateur status to professionalstatus. Now let's be clear on something. Most professionals themselves don't singwell from a technical standpoint.
So just to sing like a Pro doesn't meanyour singing properly or great, but I have to point out that no matter where you getyour information, think about this: the person giving that information, have they achieveda high level of professional statusé And do they demonstrate students that haveprofessional statusé We have over 300 tutorials on my channel, withthe plethora, which means a lot, of students on my channel, many of which have achievedawesome professional status.

at this level. We're going to sing an AA vowel, and theAA vowel scale is going to go like this. Layâ€¦ Ahhhâ€¦ So AA and Ah, and we're going to actuallyslowly go through this to start to strength train the voice, here we go. Ladies, you'll do this up the octaveâ€¦ Layâ€¦
Ahâ€¦ Do this with us in octavesâ€¦ Layâ€¦ Ahâ€¦ Now, going between vowels, AA and Ah helpresiliency and the ability to relax the cords and to, with freedom, be able to go up anddown a scale without feeling tension in the throat, because we want to build strengthfor the sound. Layâ€¦
Differentiated Instruction in the Classroom at Mesquite Elementary School
gt;gt;My name is Connie. I was the founding principleof Mesquite Elementary. I began my teaching career herein Vail at Acacia Elementary and I was there for about four years. I thought oh if I could do mydream school what would I doé And then when I was asked to be theplanning principal for this school and help plan it I was thinking,you know, what can we do differenté What can we do to reallyhelp childrené
And then as we went into oursecond and third year, you know, the state testing becamemore and more and more. When the test scores came inwe just, you know, were really, really devastated to seethat say for instance that fifth grade I remember we were like in the thirtyninthpercentile in math. You know, you think you're teachingand that you're doing a good job, but then when we see that we knewthat something had to change.
gt;gt;Katie: Well let's goahead and get started. In the enrichment strategies,of course Jen, it's going to play animportant part with that. gt;gt;Connie: We just started, youknow, talking here as a team and we came up with a plan. We were going to startimplementing Reteach and Enrich in the second semesterwhich we did do. gt;gt;When the new system came andwe started all collaborating,
the tracks were gone, thecollaboration was occurring, the sharing of ideas, so there hasbeen this great collaboration piece where we all really help each other. gt;gt;The staff came together. We were able to design theReteach and Enrich program and it was just amazingwhat happened. gt;gt;So these formatives are away of assessing everything that you have learned aboutprime and composite numbers.
gt;gt;We wanted to give students anopportunity to be retaught skills that they did not learn, sowhat we did is we made sure that we had a time in the day whereif students did not master the skill that was previously taught, wegave them time to master that. gt;gt;Connie: And the math scores jumpedtremendously when we got them back after that aims test and we went from a performing schoolto an excelling school. It was the key to moving us up.
The leadership in Vail, you know,starts out with people like Katie. gt;gt;Katie: Connie was my mentor. I worked for her as a teacherand really kind of followed in the footsteps of whatConnie started at Mesquite and have just expanded upon that. I'm Katie. I'm the principal ofMesquite Elementary in the Vail SchoolDistrict in Tucson, Arizona.
