The best way to reach me is via email, as I split my time between two schools. My email address is  I will also send out weekly reminders about orchestra, as I have found in past years that “orchestra day” is often difficult to remember and students easily forget to bring instruments/materials.  Please sign up for Remind101 to receive text alerts.  This is a program that is used a lot at the high schools. If you are not familiar with this program, it is an communication platform for teachers to text groups all at once with reminders/alerts, etc.


Directions for Remind 101:

4th Grade Orchestra Families: Text @orch4 to 81010

5th Grade Orchestra Families: Text @orch5hill to 81010





Class Website: I will maintain a class website with important dates and classroom materials. (and also linked from the Hillside Website!)
