Ms. Golub brings to her position her expertise and research on a music curriculum integrating technology and its effects on student achievement, motivation, and self-esteem.

In August of 2005 Ms. Golub had the pleasure of bringing the Music and the Brain Program that she teaches at PS 11, to Israel. She trained teachers at Achuzat Sarah, a home for children in Bnei-Brak. After visiting the home in 2004, she wanted the children there to have the chance to enjoy the advantages that the program offers. It was a wonderful experience for all involved.
