Education and experience

I teach elementary music at Fountaindale Elementary School for the Arts and Academics in Hagerstown, MD. I am passionate about curriculum and desire for each of my students to have fun learning while developing an appreciation of music. 

This past summer I complete my level I Orff certification. It was a great experience and I learned how to use the principles of sing, say, dance, play to make my music classroom more engaging! In 2017 I achieved National Board Certification in P-12 music education. I earned my Masters of Education, with a focus on Technology Integration, from Walden University in 2007. I am also a 2002 graduate of Lebanon Valley College with a Bachelor of Science in Music Education. I continue to learn innovative and exciting ideas by attending conferences, reading, connecting with other music teachers, and leading other teachers in my district. 

 

Family

6I am married to my best friend, Tyler, and I enjoy spending time with him whenever I can. Our daughter Addison is 9 years old and just started 4th Grade! Mackenzie turned 6 in July and is excited to start 1st grade. I love every moment of being a mom! I also keep busy with my toy fox terrier, Riley.

Outside of school I am also busy teaching music to the kids’ choir at my church. They are an enthusiastic group of singers! I also help to organize a Bible study with some other working moms. In my spare time (although there is very little of it at this point!) I enjoy working out, singing, reading, skiing, and playing games.
