I am an elementary music teacher in Bentonville, Arkansas. I graduated from the University of Arkansas music education program, and I am currently pursuing a Masters Degree in Educational Technology. I love teaching my 600 Kindergarten through 4th graders each week.
I strive to try new things in my classroom and share my love of music with my kiddos. Also, I enjoy dancing, singing and playing games with my students. Every year, I try to use Orff instruments, books and puppets more and more! The hugs and smiles I get from kids are the best part of the day. In my spare time, I teach piano lessons at school and home.
Currently, I am a head coach of Girls on the Run and founder/coach of the Running Club. Also, I have started taking guitar lessons! My goal is to alternate accompanying my students on the piano and guitar.
