TEACHING EXPERIENCE

I just completed my 21st year of teaching public school. 20 of those years have been spent teaching middle school children. I have taught in North Carolina, New Jersey, and I am currently teaching in the state of Georgia. I have developed a Sight Singing method called S-Cubed that works very well for choral students from 4th grade to 8th grade. I have used the method with my own students for many years. I have taught workshops on S-Cubed for about 5 years including presentations at the Georgia Music Educator's State Convention. Teaching Middle School is not for the faint of heart! In the early days, I felt like a miserable failure. Now, I want to share some of the lessons I learned along the way to help other middle school teachers and music teachers!

MY TEACHING STYLE

*I want the children to laugh every single day. *I reward children when they do the right thing. The students in my room often have to dodge flying Starburst candy. *I hold children accountable when they don't do the right thing, and I always strive to do it while maintaining 100% of the their dignity. *Respect is a continuous circle. *My least favorite quote as a child was "Wait until you get into the real world.....". Well....ever since that day, I've done my best to avoid it. It sounds like a horrible place to live. :)

ADDITIONAL BIOGRAPHICAL INFORMATION

*I am a former US National Aerobic Gymnastics Champion. I love fitness and teach group fitness classes on the side. *Certified by the Federation of International Gymnastics (FIG) as an International Judge for Aerobic Gymnastics. *I lived in Switzerland for one year 2009-2010. While there, I traveled to 10 European countries. Amazing Experience! *I absolutely love animals. It's definitely my Mom's fault. :) I have a cat named Odie (acts like a dog), a Maltese dog named Max, and a bird named "Birdie" (original, I know). She has been with me since I started teaching in 1989.
