I have twelve years of experience teaching general music, orchestra, choir, and band in the elementary classroom.
I am an Orff Schulwerk certified teacher and use the Orff process in my classroom.
I co-presented a workshop on Orff Schulwerk Process at the Illinois Music Educator's Conference in 2013 and have presented several mini-lessons at the Fox Valley Orff Schulwerk Chapter over the last six years.
I graduated with a degree in Music Education from Illinois Wesleyan and have received my Orff Schulwerk Training at VanderCook College of Music.
I love my job!
