Mr. Israel Rochester
Hello, my name is Angel Love Robbins. I was born in Danville, Kentucky, but I have lived in Georgia most of my life. I moved to Douglasville when I was entering first grade, and graduated from New Manchester High School. I’ve achieved many things, such as graduating as a Board Scholar and I began my own little photography business. I love roller skating and every type of art there is. I took visual arts, ceramics, drawing, and photography while in high school. For the 2017-2018 school year I will be attending Georgia Highlands and teaching for my first year at Sherry Adams Preparatory Academy.
I am Israel Rochester, I have been studying music since the age of 9 and have a firm grasp on various musical concepts. I am adept at sight reading, as well as piano instrumentation. I have been a member of the GMEA All-State choir since I was in the 7th grade. I have also been recognized as a county finalist for the Governor's Honors Program and look to enrich the minds of all those I encounter. I will implement a hands on approach to the children as they are learning to play the piano, as well as a basis for understanding music. I am very excited for the upcoming school year here at the Sherry Adams Preparatory Academy.
