Welcome to music! I have been teaching in Unit 5 for 10 years. I teach general music at Hudson and Sugar Creek Elementary schools. I enjoy working with all the students (grades K-5) in my buildings and am extremely thankful that I get to spend my days singing and teaching children the joy of music!
I graduated from Illinois State University with teaching degrees in both Elementary Education (K-8) and Music Education ( K-9).
Just prior to starting at Sugar Creek and Hudson, I taught First Grade at Prairieland for one year. I also worked at Grove and KJHS as a teaching assistant for two years. Prior to starting in Unit 5, I taught general music (K-8) in Grand Ridge, Il. and have also taught Preschool. I spent many years substituting K-12 before I returned to the teaching profession in Unit 5 full time (2005).
I enjoy reading, playing the piano and spending time with my family. I hope to spread the love and joy of music to all my students!
