I was born and raised in Colorado. I received my Bachelor of Arts in Music Education K-12 as well as my Masters in Curriculum and Instruction from Adams State University in Alamosa, CO. I have completed 13 years of teaching. I taught 6th-12th grade Band and Choir in Trinidad, CO for 7 years before moving to Arizona. My husband and I moved to Arizona in 2012 where I taught 5th-8th grade Band and 4th-12th grade Orchestra in San Tan Valley for 4 years. I am now in my third year at Laveen and excited to see what this year has in store for me.
