I am in my 13th year of teaching K-5 general music at Bivins Elementary in Amarillo ISD in Amarillo, TX. I play the oboe in the Amarillo Symphony Orchestra and am constantly working to use my experience as an orchestra musician to benefit my students.
I am level 3 Kodaly certified and REALLY would love to officially enter the Orff world and start my levels soon!
2010 Teacher of the Year at Bivins Elementary. My 4th and 5th grade Honor Choir was awarded "Best in Class" at the Greater Southwest Music Festival in 2016 and 2017!

I have two sweet and crazy little boys. Marshall is 4 and Liam is 8. They challenge me every day to become a better person and teacher and I am extremely thankful for it!
