Hello and welcome to music class. This is my 38th year of teaching and my 24th year at Mandeville Elementary. Teaching is my life's work. It is my joy and pleasure to bring music to the children in St Tammany Parish Schools.
I graduated from the University of Toledo in 1977 with a Bachelor's of Education Degree in Music. I am certified to teach both instrumental and vocal music to grades K-12. In 1999 I was chosen Teacher of the Year at MES. I earned National board Certification in 2005. I've taught private music lessons on piano, guitar, and band instruments throughout my career.
I am looking forward to a music filled school year. My vision is to instill a love for music in all my students.
