Education Specialist, Val Simons, MA ESE, received one of the VAPA Foundation’s 14 inaugural awards. With it she purchased a karaoke machine and ukulele wall mounts for her classroom. The karaoke machine enables her students that have communication challenges to practice speaking with the microphone. The wall mounts allow Val to safely and beautifully store the ukuleles she uses with SDUSD’s Guitars in the Classroom program; a program that helps Val use music to teach across her entire curriculum.
