• My name is James Dorsett and I am excited to join the Colfax Elementary community as this year's new music teacher! I earned my Bachelor of Music in Music Education degree and a Minor in Business from the University of North Carolina at Greensboro and have spent the past seven years teaching elementary music in the Winston-Salem/Forsyth County Schools District.

    At Colfax I will focus my time building a program centered around students. I will share my passion and love for music with students in hopes of creating a spark, appreciation, and love of music within them. I believe that every student can exceed expectations. My goal for every student is that they can read, perform, and create music independently at a proficient level, beginning in Kindergarten and developed throughout all grade levels.

    I expect ALL students to do their VIKING BEST!
