I am very pleased to be the choir teacher at Chandler High School. Our program continues to grow and flourish and I enjoy learning more all the time.

My Education and Professional Background

In 1978 I received a Bachelor of Arts degree from Whitworth University in Spokane, WA with a double major in k-12 Music Education and Vocal Performance. In 2007 I completed my Master's Degree from Northern Arizona State in Educational Psychology.

My Educational Philosophy

I believe learning never stops, for the students OR the teacher. I believe if a student will really participate fully, singing in choir can change his/her life. Students find confidence, sing courageously, perform passionately before hundreds of people. They learn the value of personal accountability and how that affects the teamwork of the ensemble. Students can also find a family in the choir room
