Over the past thirteen years, I've taught music and English language learning in public schools. I love getting to know my students for who they are and keying in on their interests and strengths. I believe relationships are an important part of learning, and through knowing my students well I can also help recognize and pour into areas of needed growth.

I have been a percussion player for 25 years, and I love playing in our summer community band. I enjoy taking pictures and journaling. My favorite family activity is finding new parks and trails around our community to enjoy together!
