At ASB Since
Why I Became An Educator
Music is my passion and service to God. I have loved music all my life and I enjoy working with children of all ages. I became an educator so that I could encourage students to find their own musical interests. I hope that each child will explore, create, observe, question, study, practice, and perform music. I firmly believe that through music, students gain a better understanding of themselves and their community.
Why I Like Working at ASB
I have been so impressed with the warm, welcoming community of teachers and families. This is a school that is founded on its Christ-centered values and traditions. It also has a clear commitment to academic excellence and service to others. I look forward to making wonderful music here at ASB!
My favorite book has always been The Wonderful Wizard of Oz. I have read all 38 books in the series!
