Hello! Thank you for visiting my website! I am excited to be in my ninth year of teaching music in the Chardon School District! I am a Chardon and Munson alumna and couldn't be happier to be here! I love teaching the joy of music to my 700+ students at Munson, Park, and the Chardon Early Learning Center. I believe that music should be accessible to everyone and that music should involve singing, playing instruments, and lots of movement! We are working to provide the elementary music classrooms with more and more instruments each year. I am certified in the Orff-Schulwerk method and I also incorporate the Kodaly method in my classroom as well. I have a BA in Music Education from Cleveland State, and will graduate this spring with an MA in Music Education from Case Western Reserve University. My husband and I live in Lyndhurst, Ohio with our cats!
