Alan Menken (Children's)

Distinguished composer/lyricist Alan Menken is responsible for penning many of the catchiest tunes from Disney features of the late '80s onward, including such chart-toppers as "Whole New World" (from Aladdin) and "Colors of the Wind" (Pocahontas). Menken is a graduate of New York University and got his start when noted playwright Howard Ashman chose him and Lehman Engel to write the music for his 1978 adaptation of Kurt Vonnegut's God Bless You, Mr. Rosewater. Menken and Ashman had major success as a team when they adapted Roger Corman's popular 1960 film Little Shop of Horrors into an off-Broadway smash that in 1986 became a major feature film. With Menken penning the tunes and Ashman writing the lyrics, the duo began working for Disney Studios on The Little Mermaid, the company's first major animated feature in years. For their catchy calypso tune "Under the Sea," Menken and Ashman earned an Oscar. Menken has since earned seven more for his songwriting work. Following Ashman's death in 1991, Menken continued working for Disney with others, notably Stephen Schwartz. ~ Sandra Brennan, Rovi

Don't read this because it actually works. You will be kissed on the nearest Friday by the love of your life. However, if you don't post this, you will be injured, but not die, in two days. Now you've started this so don't stop. Post this on at least 5 songs in the next 143 minutes. When you're done, press f6 and your lover's name will appear on the screen in big letters. This is so scary because it actually works

I would like to be qualified for this position. I am fun, loving, and caring. I treat children as if they were my own. My very first job was Babysitting and I babysat for that family for over three years. The reason I stopped babysitting for the family was because they moved to Delaware. The family went from two children to three children and I miss them dearly. I currently work for the School District of Palm Beach County and have been doing this for 7 years now. Working with children is a pa
