This year will be my 12th year teaching. In that time I have taught music Pre-K through 5th Grade in Augusta, Wichita, and Maize, KS.
I love integrating music with other subject areas and technology. I create many hands-on-learning units for my students including centers, worksheets, themed studies, games, Promethean lessons, and many other fun materials for growing and learning.
Kansas Horizon Award, ING Unsung Hereos Award, and over $30,000 in classroom grants for special projects.
Bachelors of Music Education from Wichita State University
When I am not at school, I enjoy spending time with my husband Charles and my two boys Warren (11) and Ethan (9). My husband Charles has been a teacher for the last thirteen years in the Wichita School District. He teaches 2nd grade at Kensler Elementary. As a family we enjoy hiking the nature trails at Pawnee Prairie Park, riding bikes, and visiting the zoo.
