Teaching Philosophy: My current philosophy has developed from my experiences as a learner and as a teacher. There are three key principles that guide my teaching practice: valuing students as individuals; creating a positive, active learning environment and linking theory and practice. Not only do I derive a great deal of personal satisfaction in teaching, but I am consistently amazed by how much I can learn from the act of teaching. I value student learning, and so in my teaching I reflect on student feedback.

Get to know Rebeca Matos

After graduating from Southeastern Louisiana University (SLU) at Hammond, La., where I acquired my Bachelor of Music (1977) and Master of Music degrees (1978), I first began teaching Piano at two important Music Conservatories in Caracas, Venezuela; in one “Juan Manuel Olivares”, teaching Piano majors; and in the other “Juan José Landaeta”, teaching Piano minors (1978-1992). In 1986 I started teaching at the Universidad Pedagógica Experimental Libertador, Instituto Pedagógico de Caracas (UPEL-IPC), where I became a Full Time Professor in the Art Department teaching in the Music Education Program until 2009 when I retired.

During my time at the University I acquired my PhD in Education (2005), and besides teaching different undergraduate and graduate courses, I had under my responsibility different Academic Administration Responsibilities: Chief of Chair, Academic Council, Head Department, having under my supervision forty faculty members, five administrative members and over 400 students of four specialties Majors: Art, Music Education, Performing Arts and Industrial Design, Undergraduate Coordinator and Member of Institutional, National and International Commissions.

I also conducted teacher’s workshops, staff meetings, supervised curriculum administration and attended student’s affairs. As a product of my teaching experience I developed learning materials and conducted pedagogic research as a continual reflection of my teaching practice.

Since my retirement, I kept teaching at UPEL-IPC’s PhD in Education and PhD in Environmental Education. Also, in the Master of Music’s program at the Universidad Simón Bolívar in Caracas, Venezuela
