Hello Pine Tree Parents!
As I enter my 8th year teaching music, I couldn’t be more thrilled to return to Pine Tree Elementary. After all the fun we had last year, I am excited to begin my second year here and see all of our Pine Tree kiddos again.
After graduating from Anderson University with my degree in Music Education, I jumped right into elementary music teaching. I have loved every minute of it! I choose to utilize the Orff Schulwerk Method in my classroom and finished my full certification through Anderson University in 2013. (More on this method in the Orff Schulwerk tab.) I find great joy through inspiring children to experiment, explore, create, grow and mature with music as the medium.
My husband and I are both teachers and we reside in Avon too. Just under two years ago, we became parents and our now 1.5 year old boy definitely keeps us on our toes! When we aren’t busy playing Mom, Dad or Teacher, we enjoy being active in our church community and spending time with our dog Buddy.
I can’t wait to see your kids again this year and meet all of my new, little Kindergarten friends! I am looking forward to many musical memories made!
