Area of expertise
Music: General and Vocal
I began my teaching career in 2010 when I took an emergency fill position with Chicago Public Schools at William Howard Taft High School in Chicago, IL. After a year and a half, I spent a short time with the private school sector and a different public school district. I then returned to and stayed with CPS for another 5 1/2 years. I moved to Missouri just before the 2019-2020 school year and took the 6th-grade music position at Smith-Hale Middle School. I am now beginning my 10th year teaching and have moved once more to teach K-5th music at Compass. I am very excited about this school year and can't wait to meet all of my new students.

Why I Chose Education as My Career of Choice
I want to help students become the best person they can be and instill a lifelong passion and appreciation for all types of music.
In my spare time, I like to sing, perform musical theatre, go shopping, and spend time with my family.
