Degrees and Certifications:
Miss Kendall Newman
Hey there! My name is Miss Newman and I have been teaching at Ramirez Elementary since 2016. I graduated with my Bachelor's Degree in Music Education from Texas Tech University. Wreck 'em! I hold a Kodaly Certification from Portland State University.
I believe in teaching musical skills and literacy through singing. The Kodaly philosophy that I believe in incorporates folk music, solfege, and sequenced curriculum that spirals as the student grows. It is my goal that all students who come through my class will develop musical skills through a fun and participatory experience!

Lost in Time: 3rd, 4th, & 5th Grade ProgramDue to unfortunate circumstances, someone very special to Ramirez is now wandering through time! Join the third, fourth, and fifth graders as they travel to the Battle of San Jacinto, Picasso's art studio, and the manor of Confucius to find their lost friend. They will be singing, moving, acting, speaking in multiple languages, and using their artwork as they travel through time and space. Since so many grade levels are combined to create this performance, the program will be held at Lubbock High School Auditorium. Please invite your friends and family!When: Monday, November 18Students arrive at 5:30Presentation will begin at 6:002004 19th St, Lubbock, TX 79401
Please email Miss Newman (firstname.lastname@example.org
) if you have any questions! We hope to see you there!
Last year we had nine students audition for the OAKE National Children’s Chorus and five were
selected to represent Ramirez! I hope that your fourth or fifth grader will represent us this year.
Those who are interested in auditioning must prepare
with Miss Newman after school Fridays beginning
August 23 until 4:15 each day. Students who are
selected to try out will record an audition with Miss
Newman in October. See below for the required audition material:
Let Miss Newman know if you have any questions!
