    Hello and welcome to Chorus and Piano classes.  This is my 36th year to teach children, and my 13th year to teach at Monteleone Jr. High.  I have been here since the building first opened.  I love teaching and I especially love teaching the children in St. Tammany!


    I graduated from Oklahoma Baptist University in 1979 with a bachelor's degree in Vocal Music Education K-12.  Later, I earned a bachelor's degree in Elementary Education.  I have also attended professional classes in Yamaha Piano Education, Teaching Exceptional Children, and graduate classes in Psychology, Counseling, and Vocational Education.


    I am really looking forward to this school year and making music with Monteleone Jr. High students.
