PROFESSIONAL: I hold a Bachelors degree from the University of Georgia in Music Education. This is currently my 11th year teaching music and my 8th year at Deal School. Here at Deal I teach K-8 General Music, 4-8 Band and help to direct the Roseld Avenue Players, our drama club. I have experience teaching music to students from pre-k all the way through High School. I enjoy incorporating ukuleles, guitars, recorders and music technology projects in class. I encourage students to create! Seeing students create their own musical compositions is one of my favorite parts of my job as an educator.
PERSONAL: I'm originally from Georgia but grew up in a military family living around the world and I'm now happy to call New Jersey home. Music is a big part of my life - I have been playing piano since age 7 and now I'm happy to be passing on my love of music to my students. I enjoy spending time with friends and family (especially my husband and son), traveling, hiking and finding great concerts and shows to attend. I'm also a huge sports fan - especially football!
