I believe in real world education. I teach my students what they need to know of be able to LOVE music, and LOVE learning and have the skills and drive to continue to pursue this passion in the life after they leave my class.
Conversation I overheard by two 5th grade student headed to my room: "Music class is so cool! I wish we had it every day." To me, that is the biggest honor of all.

I enjoy my role as a mentor teacher to several groups of students from the University of Massachusetts, Lowell, getting a lot of pre-practicum teaching experience in my classroom.
