In my 30th year of teaching, music and children are two of my greatest passions! An accomplished pianist and singer, I also play the cello and a variety of folk instruments. I have had students chosen to perform on a nationally televised production of "The World's Largest Concert," the North Carolina Elementary Honors Chorus, and throughout our local community. I have served as the elementary section chair for the North Carolina Music Educators' Association, and have led music with children abroad during various mission trips. I love helping children grow and share in the joy of making and learning about music!
