Dr. Tae Sakamoto named a "Top Teacher" by Delaware Today

Congratulations to Dr. Tae Sakamoto who was named a "Top Teacher" by Delaware Today magazine in its September issue. A talented musician and passionate teacher, Tae has been Orchestra and Choral Director and general music teacher at Independence since 2013. 

In her interview with the magazine, Dr. Sakamoto said, "Music teaches students important life skills and traits such as discipline, patience, time management, teamwork, respect and critical listening. It enhances the quality of their lives. It gives them a mental oasis, confidence, a sense of belonging and a platform to express their creativity."

Our students are so fortunate to learn from such a dedicated teacher.
