I have taught Elementary Education for over 15 years and have a Masters in Music Education and a B.S. in Elementary Ed. I currently teach music in a PK-5th Elementary School. I have also taught early childhood classes and present lessons to adults on music education.
My teaching style is Eclectic utilizing Orff-Schulwerk, Dalcroze, and Kodaly, with singing, movement, and playing instruments. Movement to music is very important especially now, and a movement/dance exercise is planned as part of each lesson.
Member of the American Orff-Schulwerk Association, and committee member to the National Convention. Also a board member of our local chapter and continue to advance my career with many professional development opportunities. I have also received scholarship awards for undergraduate and graduate studies at universities attended.

I love nature and hiking in the outdoors as well sharing the love of music with others. Composition and instrumental writing is a hobby I enjoy.
