My husband and I have been married for 24 years and have four amazing children from ages 21, 19, 16, and 9 (3 boys and a girl).  A girl from Wisconsin met a boy from Virginia in Nashville, TN and started their life.  Together, we love to travel (especially tropical islands and the ocean) hike, swim and explore new cultures & foods.  My favorite sports teams are the Green Bay Packers and Tennessee Titans, but rounding out at the top, the Nashville Predators Hockey team. My hobbies are cooking/baking, gardening, volunteering, hiking, and talking with friends for hours on end.  My faith is extremely important to me and I am blessed to have the life I have, thanking God each day.


I believe each student has the gift of music hidden inside them. Whether it is vocal or instrumental performance, listening, composing, or improvising music, it is my job to help our students appreciate all genres of music. When a student builds confidence in themselves, they begin to appreciate and achieve goals, even if small.  I believe in hard work and pushing my students to their full potential while remaining positive.  Music is meant to stir emotions, create memories, and spark creativity.  My hope and prayer is that God will bless my classroom each and everyday.

I have a passion to teach children with special needs and hope to continue to educate myself in the future.
