Teaching Artist Statement
I have taught English Language Arts for 19 years in the Plymouth Public Schools and promoting Literacy has been the most important standard in their curriculum. I feel fortunate to be able to bring my experience of teaching reading and writing and connecting this knowledge to music in a fun and expressive way. My love for music has always been an important part of my life.
Mal received her Bachelor of Science in Education from Eastern Nazarene College in Quincy, MA and her Master of Education Degree from Boston State College. She has sung in many choirs, chorals, and choruses throughout her life. She was a member of the Pilgrim Festival Chorus for 10 years and has been a member of The Church of The Pilgrimage Sanctuary Choir for the last 15 years. Her experiences in teaching ELA and fostering literacy along with experiences in music are a perfect match for the ImagineARTS Program! She became a member of SSC's Community Partnerships team in 2017.
