Mrs. Analisa S Byrd
Analisa Salinas Byrd is a firm believer in education. She is from a family of educators and has dedicated her life to music education and bringing a quality musical experience to the children she teaches.
Analisa has been an elementary music teacher, kindergarten through fifth grades, for 16 years. She now teaches for the North East Independent School District in San Antonio, Texas at Steubing Ranch Elementary School. Her degrees are Bachelor of Arts, Psychology (2001), Bachelor of Arts, Music Education (2006), and Master of Arts, Educational Leadership and Administration (2012), from the University of Texas in San Antonio. She holds Orff Levels I, II and III, completed in 2009 at Trinity University in San Antonio, Tx. She has learned more from the children she teaches than in all her formal education and continues to grow as a teacher everyday. As a music teacher, Analisa knows the importance of acknowledging all learning styles in effective instruction. She developed Magnetix to address all learning styles specific to recorder instruction. Analisa is a professional flute player and instructor and greatly values the use of visuals to aid in instruction of note names and fingerings. Magnetix engages all the learning styles through its use of color, ease of reading, ease of manipulation and its ability to adapt to any methodology of instruction.
Analisa is committed to bringing quality resources to the classroom, along with lesson plans and engaging ideas for children. Analisa works as a consultant for Rhythm Band Instruments at the Texas Music Educator Association and is a two time presenter/clinician at TMEA. Analisa loves being a mom to her 16 year old son, Robert.
