The Ravenswood School community welcomes Ms. Deborah Ashbrook-Sanchez as our new, full-time music teacher, beginning in the fall of 2012. Ms. Sanchez joins the Ravenswood fine arts faculty as an experienced teacher who is highly trained in the arts integration philosophy employed at Ravenswood School.
Ms. Sanchez spent more than 20 years building a top-notch integrated, differentiated music program at Pulaski Fine Arts School (now known as Pulaski International School) in the Bucktown neighborhood. Through well-honed grant-writing and partnership-building skills, Ms. Sanchez maximized resources to expand the music program beyond the confines of a typical school budget—skills and resourcefulness that will, no doubt, transfer very well to Ravenswood School.
Ms. Sanchez earned her Bachelor’s degree in Music Education and her Master’s degree in School Administration, both from Northeastern Illinois University.
