Santiago wanted to become a teacher because of her orchestra teacher, Mr.Brown. He had a great passion for music which he passed on to Santiago. And now, she wants to do the same for other kids. Santiago’s favorite part of teaching is passing on music knowledge to students.
”I think my favorite part about teaching is getting to know my students and having that teacher-student bond," Santiago said. "I love teaching because I love music, and I want to pass that on to my students.”
