Despite being separated during the lockdown of Spring 2020, our school continued to find ways to come together as a community. I created this video as part of a school assembly to keep in touch with my students and to encourage them to find the positives given the challenging circumstances we were in.
Clair de Lune - dedicated to Grandpa Nitschke
My grandfather passed away in February of 2021, and I was unfortunately not able to make it to the funeral due to travel restrictions. I created this arrangement to honor him, as Clair de Lune was one of his favorite pieces.
What a Wonderful World
During the lockdown of Spring 2020, my previous school district reached out to me, inviting me to share a message to my previous students. I recorded this song for them.
I'll Be There For You
I created my own arrangement as a farewell to my colleagues at Pleasant Ridge Elementary, where I taught for the first five years of my teaching career. The new lyrics carry important memories and lessons from my time there.
