Moore, Patience
Teaching Music, v19 n1 p44-47 Aug 2011
Teaching music to nearly a thousand elementary students each week would make any educator break a sweat. But one would never know that from talking to MaryElla Neeley Stevens. After 30-plus years teaching K-4 music in the Aldine Independent School District of Houston, Texas, she still radiates positivity. Whether it's mentoring and training teachers, giving lectures on classroom management, designing a magnet school building and curriculum, or singing with the Houston Grand Opera, Neeley Stevens leads with her heart. Her clear vision, hard work, and graceful presence is infectious; her results are stunning. This article profiles Neeley Stevens and includes a Q&A with her.
