All about me...Hello! I teach music at Grove Elementary. I earned an associate's degree in Music Education from Parkland College, a bachelor's degree in Music Education from Illinois State University, and a master's degree in Music Education from Illinois State University.
I have been teaching music in Unit Five since 1999. I've been a band teacher at NCHS, CJHS, KJHS, PJHS, and at many of the district's elementary schools. I've also been a General Music teacher at Fairview Elementary, Towanda Elementary, Hudson Elementary, and Glenn Elementary. From 2006-present, I have been teaching General Music at Grove Elementary.
My wife and I reside in Normal, and are quite proud of our two boys. We love spending time together as a family, playing outside, and attending concerts.
In my spare time, I love to sing and play trumpet at church and in various community ensembles throughout the year. One of the ensembles I perform with is the Twin Cities Brass Quintet, for which I am the chief arranger. I also enjoy playing piano, trombone, ukulele, and any of my vast collection of recorders.
