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. 

I recently completed my level I Orff certification and I integrate 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

I am married to my best friend, Tyler, and I enjoy spending time with him whenever I can. Our daughter Addison is 10 years old and just started 5th Grade! Mackenzie turned 7 in July and is excited for 2nd grade. I love every moment of being a mom! 

Outside of school I am usually busy teaching music to the kids’ choir at my church, although this is temporarily on hold due to covid. In my spare time I enjoy working out, singing, reading, skiing, and playing games.
