Meet Grant Staff - Dedric RoundtreeMEET Grant's STAFF

Name -

Dedric Roundtree, Music Teacher

Years at Grant -  6, and 11 years with CRCSD

What he loves about teaching music at Grant?

"The one thing I love is you get to see the finished result at the end of the year. Which is, It's almost like an art. You get the rough, the rough draft or the rough start but towards the end, you see them blossom, you see them bloom, then you see them move on, when they come back and they are able to take all the things that they were able to do as a result of all that in their minds you forced them to do but we made them able to do. That is the fun part.
