This is my 15th year teaching music in the Park Hill neighborhood. I'm very excited to start my fourth year at Park Hill Elementary School and I look forward to creating music with all of you! I am an Orff-Schulwerk certified teacher through the University of Northern Colorado and Metro State University, which means I will teach music in a way that is fun and natural for children. This approach seamlessly integrates music, movement, drama, speech, play, and collaboration in Music instruction. My primary instrument is the piano which I studied at Butler University in Indianapolis. I am a mother of 2 beautiful boys and 2 crazy dogs. My husband and I enjoy doing fun activities as a family, especially if it involves the Denver Broncos or the Chicago Blackhawks. I'm looking forward to a musical and inspiring year with all of you!
