TEACHING EXPERIENCE

When I took my first job in a small town in Missouri, I had a spacious room, plenty of students, chairs, and a spinet. So it began. I created resources and lessons and grew into the teacher I am today. I learned so much about myself. What I learned there prepared me well for my next job, which I dubbed, "Music A La Carte". I continued to create materials. Resources, song charts, creative lessons plans, games, etc. After almost 10 years of teaching, I took a job where I finally had my own music room with plenty of teaching tools. I had arrived! Even though the students at my new school had plenty of resources, I never stopped creating. The resources I have chosen to publish include ideas from my early years that have evolved as my students grew and changed. And then some of the materials are those that have been created from ideas that arose out of training and expertise. Enjoy!

MY TEACHING STYLE

I am eclectic. I used ideas from various methodologies: Orff, Kodaly, and Dalcroze. Professional conferences and other workshops have given me a smorgassboard of ideas as well as encouraged me to be very creative in my lesson design and delivery.

HONORS/AWARDS/SHINING TEACHER MOMENT

I have been honored by local organizations from the communities in which I have taught. And have received the honor of presenting several clinics at the Kentucky Music Educator's Inservice Conference and have accompanied Reading Sessions there as well. The most notable honor was being selected as KMEA's State Music Teacher of the Year in 2005. That was definitely a highlight of my career.

MY OWN EDUCATIONAL HISTORY

BME: Murray State University, Murray KY. MME: Murray State University, Murray KY. National Board Certification (NBPTS) National Board Re-Certification
