Hello My Name Is…
I grew up in a very creative, artsy family and started singing, dancing, and playing the piano and violin by the age of 3. In high school, I sang and competed with the honors choirs and received many awards, both personally and as a group. I worked my way through college at Southern Utah University teaching dance as the head teacher at Dance Magic, a highly awarded dance studio my sister owned at just 19 years of age. I met my sweetheart at college and we were married 4 years later. I then went on to home school my own kiddos for almost 12 years and enjoyed teaching dance, music theory and chorale, and beginning piano out of my home for much of that time. We just moved to Arizona from Texas where we left part of our hearts, but we are all excited to start going to charter schools this year and look forward to what the year will bring!
As the music teacher, I plan on instilling an appreciation of music to my students and making music fun and enjoyable for them! I will use games, music demonstrations, and lesson plans that will focus on movement, rhythm, beat, dynamics, vocabulary, pitch, form, theory, tempo, and singing. I also hope to pull out the good old recorders with the older students.
I look forward to getting to know each of your children and hope I can make a positive difference in their lives.
