What I Do
I love my job. I teach choir, musical theater & general music. I show students a positive way to deal with life's many emotions through the art of music. I do this through a teaching style that is fun, approachable & high-energy. I offer my students opportunities to move physically, be loud & make personal connections with one another, things that are not always possible in other school subjects.
I work to make my choirs and casts to feel like teams. Each student offers a unique skill set, yet no single student can accomplish what we can all accomplish together. I remind students, "the more support you can give to the person sitting next to you, the better we will all sound."
At the end of each year, I want students to look back at all of the hard work they put in. I want them to recognize that their hard work created great shows that left lasting impressions with their audiences. I want them to make the connection that if they put the time & energy into any aspect of school or personal life, they can achieve great things.
