Congratulations to Mr. Todd, EMS PTA Teacher of the Year.
Kley Todd is in his second year as Band/Choir Director at EMS. He graduated from Turner Ashby High School, and earned his B.A. in Music from Columbia University and his M.A. in Music Education from the Teachers College at Columbia. In his short time here at Elkton Middle, Mr. Todd has made a huge impact on the music program. He not only teaches students to sing or play their chosen instruments, but incorporates technology into his classroom, encouraging them to create music via other mediums as well. He and Mrs. Deane collaborated on the new musical theater class and produced the first ever musicals on the EMS Stage, Annie and Mulan. As a member of the Technology Committee, of which he will be Chairman next year, Mr. Todd has educated many of our faculty in innovative and creative uses of technology in the classroom. His positive attitude, winning smile, and charming personality brighten the halls of EMS on a daily basis!
