Stockum wins award

Music EdVentures, Inc. has awarded the 2016 Fleurette Sweeney Fellowship for Emerging Pioneers in Education to Mary Stockum, music teacher at West Grand Elementary and Middle School in Kremmling.

This fellowship and grant recognize and support teachers for their creativity, innovation, and leadership potential in applying the principles and practices of the SongWorks Approach to teaching. Music EdVentures mentors have been developing the SongWorks approach since first working with music education pioneers Mary Helen Richards and Fleurette Sweeney in the 1970s. Recipients of this award intend to further develop their skills as practitioners of SongWorks teaching and share its principles and practices with other educators.

Mary received her undergraduate degree from the University of Colorado at Boulder, and is working on her Masters of Music Education Degree at the University of Northern Colorado.
