I began my classroom career as a general music teacher and choral director, teaching children ages Pre-K through 5th grade, where I fell in love with my teeniest-tinest learners. I earned and maintain dual certification - K-12 Music and Early Childhood Education - served as the founding Director of a private preschool, and have taught Kindergarten for three years now. I LOVE doing what I do! It's not simply my career or job, but teaching is truly my calling and vocation.
Hands-on, whole-child learning with a focus on curriculum integration. Music and the arts are woven throughout our classroom activities as much as possible! "Educating the mind without educating the heart is no education at all." ~ Aristotle
