2016

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!

Favorite Book

My favorite book has always been The Wonderful Wizard of Oz.  I have read all 38 books in the series!
