I am so excited to be starting another year at KGA as your Performing Arts Teacher. We had some amazing performances and experiences last year and I am looking forward to making this year even better. Please visit my calendar page for upcoming performances and events. When I’m not teaching, I enjoy spending time with friends and my daughter, Taylor. I love to sing, play piano and write songs. I also like to stay active – running, biking, and playing tennis.
My Education and Professional Background
I earned a B.A. in Piano Performance from Westmont College in Santa Barbara, CA and an M.Ed in Curriculum and Instruction from NAU. I have completed Levels I and II of Orff Training at ASU. I have been teaching in Chandler since 1999 and joined the KGA family in 2014.
My Educational Philosophy
I believe we are all artists. The way we choose to treat others, spend our time and express ourselves creates a picture for the world to see. My hope is to give students the freedom to explore and express who they truly are through the beauty of music, movement and drama. We then discover the amazing masterpiece inherent in each child!
