Our responsibility as teachers is to create the best kind of person we can from the students we receive, and to make them stronger and better in every way. We have a responsibility to be impeccable with our words. Speak the truth, be kind and understand that our words that we speak when we teach, mentor, guide and even address difficult issues are strong and can seriously impact a student’s life forever. Education is a rewarding profession in which being an educator, mentor, musician and motivator essentially empowers the hearts and minds of the amazing lives that are encountered.

School and Community:
Serving our students with passion and dedication, I have exposed all of my students to performances, symphonies and opportunities to perform in our community.
