I grew up in Jefferson City and went to St, Joseph Elementary and Helias High school. I obtained a BA in music education from St. Catherine University in Minnesota and an MA in music education from Minnesota State University, Mankato. I taught in Minnesota for 16 years, (12 years in a Catholic School System). Then I moved back to Missouri and taught in the public school system for 27 years. In 2020 I retired from the public school system, but knew that I was not ready to completely retire, I taught at St. Andrews in Tipton for 2 years. Now I am excited to be teaching at St. George this year. I have two daughters who are also teachers. I am a product of Catholic schools and believe strongly in the value of a Catholic education. Education needs to include educating each child in how to be a moral person who will be an active and caring member in their community. I have always loved music and strive to instill this love of music in my students. The students will learn to read music notation, perform in ensembles, and appreciate all styles of music. I want each student to be able to express and feel emotions through their music.
