I have really enjoyed teaching elementary music for Henry County Public Schools these past 21 years.  I believe EVERYONE has music inside, and it is my job to help each student realize this

When I was five years old, my grandmother sat my sister and I down at the piano and taught us to sing in harmony.  I still remember the wonder and joy of learning to make musical sounds all by myself!  At age eight I began piano lessons, and a few years later my mother enrolled me in a group guitar class.  I learned to play the cello at 19 and decided to study Music Education at San Diego State University -- in the city where I grew up.

I still play guitar and piano in my classroom everyday.  I also play cello, bass, and banjo as often as possible in different performing groups, and just for fun.  I  consider music to be a rewarding lifelong activity and friend.

I have three grown sons, two dogs and two cats, and live in Bassett, Virginia.
