Music Education

Welcome back dinos!

My name is Mrs. Wood. Though I was born in Peterborough, Ontario, I have spent most of my life here in the 'Mac! In 2021, I completed my Bachelor of Education here in Fort McMurray through the University of Alberta. This is my second year teaching at Dr. Clark, and having graduated Grade 8 as a dino (2011), I am super jazzed to be a part of this vibrant community! I've been married for 3 years and am passionate about music, art, writing, reading, and learning new things.

My vision for music class is that students will all come in with the knowledge that they can all contribute. Music is for everyone! Along with the fact that music education has been proven to improve cognitive function, learning to play and create music is a very valuable tool in improving mental health and well-being. Throughout my own life, music has always been a valuable treasure. My hope for the 2022-2023 school year is that students will continue to develop a fresh perspective and their own passion for music as we learn, play, and create together!
