TEACHING EXPERIENCE

I've been teaching 7th and 8th grade general music and choir for the last five years. I also direct a beginning orchestra. Outside of school, I teach private piano and violin lessons, as well as volunteer at my church teaching CCD classes. Despite all of this, I wasn't always planning on being a music teacher! Throughout college, I also studied to be a math teacher, and I love creating math resources as well.

MY TEACHING STYLE

I believe students learn best by doing. I try to have my students doing hands-on activities as much as possible!

HONORS/AWARDS/SHINING TEACHER MOMENT

My favorite "awards" are my notes from my students!

MY OWN EDUCATIONAL HISTORY

B.A. in Music and Education with a concentration in Math M.M. in Music Education
