I have been into music my entire life. I started playing piano in 5th grade and loved the way music helped me focus and relieve stress. I kept playing, sang in choir, performed in musicals, and always seemed to surround myself with music.
I went to college and graduated from West Chester University. I received a B.S. Degree in Music Education with a certification to teach Band, Choir, Orchestra, and General music in grades K-12. Before coming to Rising Sun I taught middle school in Harford County for many wonderful years.
I love teaching music because I get to CREATE music with people every day. I love music so much, that during my free time I am busy music directing for theaters in Harford and Cecil counties, conducting choirs, and performing as a musician. I would never want to know a world with no music, and thankfully, with all of the talent here at Rising Sun Elementary, I never will!
