TEACHING EXPERIENCE

I began my teaching career in Garrett County, MD in 1977. I taught K-5 General Music, Beginning Band and Chorus. I was a member of the committee that created the county's first official music curriculum. I moved to northern Virginia in 1983 and continued my teaching career in Fairfax County Public Schools. I taught K-6 General Music, Chorus and started a Tone Chime group. I retired from full-time teaching in June 2011. I am currently teaching General Music two days a week in Fairfax County Public Schools.

MY TEACHING STYLE

I would describe my teaching style as eclectic with an Orff emphasis. I want my students to experience all facets of music. I love teaching the recorder and note reading. I enjoy using Orff instruments, rhythm instruments and Tone Chimes in my classroom. I want my students to recognize and appreciate the music of great composers. Most of all, I want to instill a love of music in all of my students.

HONORS/AWARDS/SHINING TEACHER MOMENT

I have had the honor of sharing my love of music with children for the past 40 years.

MY OWN EDUCATIONAL HISTORY

Bachelor of Music Education Masters in Elementary Instruction

ADDITIONAL BIOGRAPHICAL INFORMATION

I am semi-retired and love spending time with my husband and my spoiled cocker spaniel, Spunky. I love to cook and read and vacation at the lake.
