A doctoral candidate in music education at the University of Colorado Boulder, Munroe earned a Master of Music Education from Northwestern University and a Bachelor of Science in Music and Elementary Education from Western Michigan University. She has ten years of teaching experience with preschool – eighth grade students in general, instrumental and vocal music.
I am very excited to be joining the music education department in the Fall of 2017,” Munroe said. “I was drawn to the tradition of excellence throughout the School of Music at West Virginia University. I hope to carry on that tradition through my enthusiasm and experience with general music education.”
Munroe’s current dissertation focuses on the mentoring dialogues between music cooperating teachers and their student teachers. Her publications have appeared in Contributions to Music Education, Journal of Historical Research in Music Education, and General Music Today, and she has presented research at national and state level conferences including the Society for Music Teacher Education, Colorado Music Educators Association and Mountain Lake Colloquium.
“Professor Munroe brings experiences that cultivate musical growth in meaningful ways throughout the entire life span,” said School of Music Director Keith Jackson. “This expertise will contribute to the development of our music educators as they continue meeting the needs of 21st century students.”
