About Me

Hello JAA Scholars! Welcome to Elementary Music. I am thrilled to be a part of the John Adams Academy. This is my second year teaching the scholars at the El Dorado Hills Campus.
 
My husband and I moved to California from Montana 8 years ago. We have been enjoying our time learning about the State of California and experiencing the many aspects it offers.
 
I received my Bachelor's degree in K-12 Music Education from Montana State University located in Bozeman, MT. I have 16 years experience in teaching all grades as well as a variety of music classes (General Music, Choirs, Jazz Ensembles, Musical Productions and Beginning Bands).
 
I thoroughly enjoy bringing music to life for the scholars of JAA. We are able to walk through exciting history and various genres by actively bringing music back from the past. I look forward to spending the school year with you.
 
My husband and I have 4 beautiful daughters who are currently in their late 20's. I really enjoy learning the history of the United States. We love to travel, watch live Broadway Musical productions, hike and spend time with family.
