RamBand Website 

This year I overhauled our RamBand Website. The website is now current and used as a tool to help spread awareness with all of what we do as a program. The main homepage is used as a blog, and has feeds of our active social media pages. 

Included Items:
Blog, Calendar, Contact Information, Trip Information, Forms, 

Handbook, Festival Registrations, Festival Information


I have always taken pride in using Social Media as a tool to help with communication. We have a very active Facebook Account and use the Band App frequently for communicating with students and parents. 

Our Band Program at Waltrip High School is extremely active, however, to sustain this we must constantly fund-raise. Here are some of the fundraisers that I have participated in or helped coordinate:

      Mattress Sale
      Paint Night

      Spirit Nights

      Online Auctions
      Band BBQ
      Fish Fry

      Taco Night
      Calendar Giveaways

Soundtrap Pilot Program

This past year I have used the Program "Soundtrap" in my Music Media/General Music Classes. The school did not follow through and purchase a subscription after our trial period was over. 

Through talking with the company, I was able to secure a free trial for 10-20 campuses within the Houston Independent School District. I was the coordinator of this program and provided training for other teachers regularly.
