Teacher of the Month: Patrick O’Keefe Teaches the Band to Play at Smithville Elementary

Press of Atlantic City

Congratulations to February’s Lite Rock Teacher of the Month, Patrick O’Keefe from Smithville Elementary School .

Mr. O’Keefe is a music teacher and the band director at Smithville Elementary.  He was nominated by his students Daniel and Luke DiGiovannantonio.

If you listen to my conversation with Patrick (which is attached below), you’ll get a sense of the dedication and passion he brings to his job, teaching and overseeing his students as they learn their instruments and what it takes to play in a school band.

I am a real advocate of music eduction in school, and Mr. O’Keefe makes several great points about its importance at Smithville Elementary School.

Patrick O’Keefe wins a membership to Island Gym and a Lite Rock pizza party for his class courtesy of Carluccio’s Pizza in Northfield.  For submitting the nomination,Daniel and Luke are now qualified for a $2000 scholarship from Lite Rock.

Put in a nomination and tell us about a teacher in South Jersey you think is deserving of being the Lite Rock Teacher of the Month and listen for more weekdays on the Lite Rock Morning Show with Eddie Davis.

Here is my conversation with Patrick O’Keefe from Smithville Elementary School….
