People react to experiences based on what they have been previously exposed to. This is why patience, good listening skills, understanding and respect are what I aspire to teach by example; along with the magic of music. My plan is to do this while being a great, multi-culturally competent, elementary school music teacher. What a mouth full, but that’s the goal! Western would be a great school for me.

Odyssey: The Journey of a Hero The Hero's Journey is never an easy one. This particular journey, as detailed in Homer's The Odyssey, is one of struggle, loss, heartache, pain, growth and triumph. It is comprised of many steps that Odysseus has to overcome and battle through in order to achieve his final goal of reaching his home and his loved ones.

Christopher has followed rules and schedules all his life, he can’t cope without them. His entire existence has revolved around the same tedious routine, from the moment he wakes up to the moment he goes to sleep. However, as the story progresses we are shown how he learns to cope with change and how he begins to see the world as a less

Ms. Foltz, Thank you so much for the chance to apprentice at the Acton Academy Venice Beach. It was such a wonderful learning opportunity. Getting to work with you and the Eagles taught me so much and will help me greatly on my Hero’s Journey. I cannot stress how much this apprenticeship has changed my life.
