What do you like most about teaching?
Teaching students the joy and love for music in all different styles, not just what we play in school. It’s a lifelong passion.
What do you most look forward to about teaching in Monroe this fall?
I think I’m just looking forward to working with the kids and, being in so many buildings, I’ll get to meet a lot of different people and continue the district’s tradition of providing excellence in music education.
