Location: Ohio, USA
I am currently in my 27th year of teaching public school music, having spent all but five of those years teaching elementary music - my true passion. I teach in the Jackson Local Schools in Massillon, Ohio in a beautiful building with 750 students K-5. I have a Bachelor of Music Education degree from The College of Wooster, a Master of Music Education degree from The University of Akron, and a Master Teacher Certification from the State of Ohio. I am currently the Elementary Choir Festival Chair, and formerly the Elementary Repertoire and Standards Chair, for the Ohio Choral Directors Association, the General Music Chair for the Ohio Music Education Association, and the Assistant Director of Children's Choruses for The Cleveland Orchestra. I am a member of OCDA and OMEA, and I direct the Praise Team and Senior Choir at my church. I live in Ohio with my husband and our three children.
