Breaking Down Barriers
Olson, Cathy Applefeld
Teaching Music, v18 n5 p44-47 Feb 2011
Don DeVito's arrival at the Sidney Lanier Center, a public school for students with special needs in Gainesville, Florida, 10 years ago was fortuitous. He'd been teaching in a traditional school nearby while earning his master's and working on his doctorate at the University of Florida. As part of his degree requirement, he went to Sidney Lanier for an observation. He ended up covering for the music teacher when she went on maternity leave, became a regular sub, and then he got the job. This article describes how DeVito has literally opened up a world of music education for the students through out-of-the-box thinking, global outreach, and unbridled energy.
