TEACHING EXPERIENCE

I have taught General Music to Kindergarten through Fifth Graders for the past 10 years. I have had a passion for both music and technology from a very young age...in my classroom I combine the two to create exciting, interactive, and meaningful music lessons. I am a certified Teach21 teacher, which is a two-year educational technology endorsement for my school district. I teach at a STEM Academy where we integrate Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics into all aspects of our curriculum. We are pushing the envelope of STEM education in public schooling and I love it!!

MY TEACHING STYLE

I use a lot of technology in my classroom. Almost every lesson utilizes my interactive whiteboard. As far as music instruction goes, my classroom is full of movement, playing instruments, practicing skills, and hand-on work. I cover music history, related subjects, and reinforce math within my music lessons as well.

HONORS/AWARDS/SHINING TEACHER MOMENT

I serve on various Ad Hoc Committees within my school district for both Fine Arts and Student Performance/Standards. I contributed to the development of the State of Georgia Fine Arts Performance Standards for General Music.

MY OWN EDUCATIONAL HISTORY

I attended the University of Georgia, receiving a B.Mus in Music Education in 2004. I taught for 2 years then, while still teaching, I earned M.Mus in Music Education from Auburn University. My Master's program was technology rich, as I attended class via "distance learning," which only worked to fuel my love of technology.
