Not only do I teach music and chorus with a little drama at school, I also lead children's choir at church and play handbells, piano, and sometimes the organ. I LOVE middle schoolers and I LOVE teaching music.

I am married and have four children in grades 7, 8, 9, and 11.

Here are a few of my favorite quotes: 

"Music speaks what cannot be expressed, soothes the mind and gives it rest, heals the heart and makes it whole, flows from heaven to the soul."  Author Unknown

"Music gives a soul to the universe, wings to the mind, flight to the imagination, and life to everything."  Plato

"Sometimes it's not the song that makes you's the people and things that come to your mind when you hear it..."

"My music will tell you more about me than I ever will." Author Unknown
