Teachers - Elementary - Music Specialist
My name is Mrs. LaCoste and this is my 34th year of teaching and my 29th year at A. B. Daley School! I have lived in Nanton since 1969. I have a degree in music and also a degree in education. My major in music was band and my minor was piano. My education degree's major was music, so all in all, I studied 6 years of music at the University level.
I am passionate about teaching the Orff method when teaching music. It involves the whole child. The Orff-Schulwerk music teacher inspires children to explore, experience and create. Through singing, speaking, playing instruments, and moving, each music class is designed to help students not only learn the basics of music, but to delve into using their imagination.
“Since the beginning of time, children have not liked to study. They would much rather play, and if you have their interests at heart, you will let them learn while they play; they will find that what they have mastered is child’s play.”
— Carl Orff
My true passions are: my family, my music career, and swimming!
