Lowndes teacher takes top honors

August 5, 2005

Lowndes County - It's the class all students at Dewar Elementary look forward to, music with Mrs. Lynn Williams. "We get to play with recorders and that was really, really fun," said Chasity Cagle.

"She does fun things to help us learn," said David Wortham.

Fun seems to be the best way to describe the Lowndes County School System's Teacher of the Year. Through song and dance, she's teaching these young minds about music and much more. "You remember your ABC's, you learned them by singing, its much easier to remember that tune than just to remember the Alphabet," said Williams. "There's a lot of research that shows that music works in a different area of the brain and helps you in learning and remembering things."

Not only does Mrs. Williams teach the kids how to sing and play music, she also teaches them to appreciate it. "Music is a universal language, it transcends cultures and so many people are brought together through music," said Williams.

Her mission as an educator is pretty simple. "I want to make sure that when they leave our school, they enjoy music and have learned a lot 0f things about music," said Williams.

A goal she's reaching, one student at a time.
