TEACHING EXPERIENCE

I currently teach vocal music. I have taught 1st, 3rd, 4th, and 5th grade general education as well as band and choir. I have certifications in elementary classroom K-5, Instrumental Music education and Vocal Music education.

MY TEACHING STYLE

I am big on discipline, but not so big on yelling. I am not big on doing assignments just to do them. There needs to be a purpose. I would describe myself as high-energy...really high energy.
