I have been teaching since 1994, beginning as a middle school and high school choir director. After helping at a nearby elementary school I fell in love with Elementary Music and never looked back. The elementary music classroom is a magical place full of exploration and creation. I am Orff Certified in Levels I and II as well as Kodaly Level I. This means that we will be playing a lot of instruments, singing, moving, collaborating, and creating!
I taught music until I had the opportunity to be a stay-home mom. This was a wonderful 10-year adventure and I wouldn't change one bit of it. I returned to the music room and had the opportunity to open two elementary schools. I then switched gears for a few years and entered the regular classroom as a third and fourth grade Math and Science teacher. It is a special thing to be able to stand on both the regular classroom and music classroom sides of the fence. It is a glimpse into the whole child and I am very grateful to have done it. BUT, the Music Room called me back!!! It holds a special place in my heart and it is my joy to make music here in North East. Thank you for the opportunity to work with your students. It is an honor.
