I'm a Music Educator, composer, singer/songwriter and an author who loves to do all things CREATIVE. I teach elementary school music and have filled my life with experiences working with children as a Cub Scout Leader, and a Youth Leader.I hold an M.Ed. and Music Certification with training in Kodaly and Orff Methodologies. I love teaching music and I am so grateful for the joy it brings me and the kids. I want kids to be active happy learners. I believe that music inspires creativity.
I believe kids learn best when they are actively engaged. I implement differentiated teaching in all lessons and integrate Language Arts, Science, History, Math and Music with technology with active creative movement so that students have optimal opportunities to learn.
