I am a public school music teacher and music therapist. At the present time, I teach in St. Louis Public Schools at the elementary level, including Pre K. I have worked with very young special needs learners as well as typical populations. I love to create original materials for my students to help them learn in the classroom!
I tend to be an easygoing person, but sometimes I have to buck up and be tough to manage the classroom environment. Having good materials and resources help a lot.
Published The Aquarium, an iconic music book for use in the classroom to help learn music concepts and increase engagement for special learners. Coming soon, a digital curriculum company is producing an app based on my book! Watch for updates.
