I believe that as a music teacher, it is important for me to challenge myself as a musician outside of school.  I have a lot of performance experience and absolutely love to sing in choirs and shows!

This is my fifth year teaching at Hope Sullivan Elementary.  I love my job and am passionate about making sure that my students at Hope Sullivan get the best music education possible. My goal for my students is for them to have a basic knowledge of music literacy, history, singing, stage etiquette, and playing various instruments before they leave Hope Sullivan.  I love music and I hope that my students will grow to appreciate music, as well.

I believe that every student can be successful in music.   I make it my personal goal to challenge my students and help them to reach their full potential.  I do this each week in their music class and through extra curricular activities such as our grade level concerts and an auditioned choir for 2nd grade called the Hope Sullivan Singers. 

If you ever want to come see what your child has learned in music, just check the calendar for our performance dates!
