Welcome to the 2017-2018 school year!  I am so excited to be teaching band/guitar at Shepherd Junior High and band at Mendoza Elementary and Franklin at Alma Elementary.

This is my 16th year teaching and my 14th year in the Mesa Public Schools District.  I attended Arizona State University and graduated with a degree in Music Education.

I am a member of the Arizona Band and Orchestra Directors Association, the Arizona Music Educators Association, and the Music Educators National Convention. 

In addition, I play the clarinet in the Tempe Symphonic Wind Ensemble.

I am looking forward to a wonderful and exciting school year!
