    Hello Anderson Astronauts!

    I'm so excited about teaching music this year at Anderson.

    We're going to do a lot of fun and interesting activities.

    My Education and Professional Background

    I am a professional musician, playing the French horn. I have played with professional orchestras all over the world. 

    I hold three degrees in music from the University of Wisconsin-Madison, Cincinnati College-Conservatory of Music and the Peabody Institute of Johns Hopkins University.

    This is my fourth year at Chandler Unified. Before that, I taught in South Carolina. I also taught at the University of South Carolina and Wartburg College in Iowa.

    I also teach private piano lessons and French horn lessons.

    My Educational Philosophy

    I am certified in Music Learning Theory, Orff, and Eurhythmics.
    These philosophies emphasize student engagement and learning by doing.

    The Choice is Yours! Why Choose Andersen Elementary?

    I am excited about the International Baccalaureate program that is being implemented at Anderson. I think it has real potential.

    I really like Anderson's focus on inquiry-based learning. My own children went through a similar program and thrived.
