Undergraduate Degree & Major: Bachelors of Music - Music Education University: Southern Illinois University - Edwardsville Graduate Degree & Major: Masters of Arts in Education - Teacher Leadership University: McKendree University Years of total teaching experience: 2004-PresentAbout Me:Hello! I'm excited to be the choral director for Columbia Middle and High School. This is my seventh year in the Columbia School District. I previously taught general music for four years at Carlyle Grade School, followed by four years of teaching 5th-8th grade general music and 7th-8th grade choir at Belle Valley in Belleville. I became a teacher because I LOVE all aspects of music, especially singing. My goal is to give your child a lifelong love and appreciation for music. I currently live in O'Fallon with my husband Patrick, our daughter Brooklynn and son Myles, and our three dogs, Shelby, Lucy, and Scipio. I love music, taking part in musicals, reading (even labels), spending time with my family, and going to Disney World.
