‘My Black Is Beautiful’: Teaching Self Confidence Through Music
Lovely Hoffman, an educator and musician, has found a way to blend her passions and teach her students lessons that go well beyond the classroom. Through music, the sixth grade humanities teacher is committed to making her students feel empowered and confident in themselves. In addition to leading an after-school group that facilitates positive discussion among her students, Hoffman recorded a song, “My Black Is Beautiful,” (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UbuoPmB2Amg) to help her students feel beautiful in their own skin. The song resonated with many beyond her classroom, and has earned her recognition for her willingness to go above and beyond for her students’ well-being.
