Biography

Welcome to my website!  I teach orchestra at Roosevelt and Johnson Elementary Schools.  I love teaching children!  I grew up in Minneapolis, Minnesota and went to St. Olaf College.  I love singing and playing music, and I even write my own music!  Another one of my hobbies is to learn foreign languages and then to travel to countries where they speak those languages.

One of the most interesting places where I taught was in Nicaragua at the National School of Music for 2 years.  I also played violin in the Nicaraguan National Orchestra.  Next, I got my Master's in Educational Psychology at the University of Wisconsin.  For 7 years, I taught stringed instruments in the Flagstaff Public Schools using the Suzuki Method.  I even had violin and cello students in kindergarten!  For 15 years, I taught general music in Phoenix in both the Paradise Valley School District and the Creighton Elementary School District.  This is my 2nd year teaching orchestra in Mesa and I'm so happy to be here!
