Kendra Newell, Visual Arts Teacher and Communications Specialist

I am an art educator and communications/marketing specialist at ASMS. Authentic, hands-on learning takes place in my Choice-Based (TAB) art room. This allows my students to take ownership of their own learning while developing into questioners and driven problem-solvers.

Wendy Gulati, 6th Grade Instrumental Music Teacher

I think that all students should be taught to appreciate music, and a great way to do that is to allow them to participate in making music.  I began teaching instrumental music in 1992 and taught for 12 years before taking a break from teaching to stay home with my children.  I love teaching band, and I am excited to have the opportunity to do that at ASMS.

Scott Kelley, 7th and 8th Grade Instrumental Music Teacher

Throughout my thirty-six years of teaching, my mission continues to be “To foster each student’s lifelong love and appreciation of music.” I am a native of Binghamton, N.Y. and have recently retired after thirty-two years as a director of bands at Elmira Free Academy High School and from Elmira College, after twenty-five years. In addition, I co-conduct the Corning Area Community Concert Band and is the instrumental music director at the First Presbyterian Church in Elmira. I also currently perform in the Orchestra of the southern finger lakes, with various brass groups, and as a soloist throughout the region.

Melody Flanagan, Choral and 7th Grade Instrumental Music Teacher

"Music expresses that which cannot be said and on which it is impossible  to be silent" Victor Hugo. I became a teacher because I am passionate about music and want to share that passion with others. My hope for my students is that I give them the basis to continue their music journey, whether it is joining a local choir, playing in a band, or writing their own music. I want the skills they learn in my ensemble and classroom to translate to life experiences and further exploration of music.
