Degrees and Certifications:
I am excited to be teaching General Music and 6th Grade Band at Bear Creek Elementary School. This is my twenty-sixth year of teaching music in public school. It will also be my twentieth year of teaching in District 38! I have my National Board Certification in music and also have two levels of Orff training. I love teaching music!!! I grew up in Colorado Springs, and went to college at the University of Denver where I earned a Bachelor of Music Education and a Master of Music. I played clarinet in the Colorado Springs Philharmonic for 26 years. My three grown children attended school in D-38. Besides playing the clarinet, I love learning the harp, the cello, and the recorder. I love baseball and softball and I like to see all the games I can. My husband and I live in Monument with our dog.
