TEACHING EXPERIENCE

I have taught elementary music in the Andover, KS school district for 6 years. My first year, I traveled between buildings every day and worked with several grade levels at both schools. Since then I have been dedicated to just one building. My building also hosts our self-contained Special Education classes for students with severe disabilities, and working with them has been a challenge with lots of shining moments! With the administrative and accompanist help of my colleagues, I have formed and direct a large honor choir for 4th-6th grade students of the North side of Andover called the "Trojan Children's Choir." We are about to start our 3rd year with excellent singers and high hopes for beautiful music making!

MY TEACHING STYLE

Very ecclectic. Most of my collegiate training was from Kodaly certified educators, but I have a small amount Orff and World Drumming exposure as well. I believe in finding ways to assess my students that are as objective as possible, but still try to maintain the fun, free-spirited atmosphere that I love. I look forward to working with our new State/National music standards to deepen our musical experiences!

HONORS/AWARDS/SHINING TEACHER MOMENT

This year I will organize and host our South Central District Kansas Music Educators Association Elementary honor choir. I could not do it without the support and help from my Andover colleagues!

MY OWN EDUCATIONAL HISTORY

I grew up in the country outside of Clearwater, Kansas where I graduated high school in 2004. I graduated from Friends University in Wichita, KS with my Bachelor's degree in 2008. I have taken courses in working with Promethean interactive whiteboard software, and in Project-Based Learning approaches.

ADDITIONAL BIOGRAPHICAL INFORMATION

I have been married to my husband for nearly 9 years, and we have a daughter, who is starting Kindergarten this Fall at my school. What an adventure! I am heavily involved in choral activities outside of my school: I direct the "Trojan Children's Choir" as I said before. I am involved in my church's praise team and choir. Also, I sing every season in the Singing Quaker Alumni Choir (a group for former members of my alma mater's top group).
