Active Multi-Sensory Learning is what I'm all about! Group Games and Music for Pre-K--1st have always been my focus. I have served as a preschool director, Pre-K - K teacher, Head Start teacher, 2nd grade teacher, and school music teacher. I also enjoy 'teaching teachers' - Joyful Noises Express travels all around, giving music workshops for preschool teachers. Lots of "fun and games"!
Bringing the Fun! I offer group classroom games, rhythm activities, and fun songs, with the emphasis on ACTIVE learning. Come and visit here when you're having a rainy day and your students have "the wiggles"!

I probably hold some kind of record for writing and directing 26 Preschool Christmas Programs in a row! Angel wings, anyone?
