Welcome to the LQMS STEM Academy Band Website - Home of Bulldog Pride!
I've been teaching at LQMS for more than 30 years! I never get tired of teaching band, because the band is just a little bit different every year. I look forward to meeting the new members of our band, and working with our band students to improve each and every day!
I have always loved bands. I grew up admiring the USC Trojan Marching Band (Dr. Arthur C. Bartner is one of my heroes), and knew that band would always be part of my life. When I went to college - The University of California at Davis (Go Aggies!) - I knew I wanted to be in the band, but didn't know if I wanted to major in Music or Engineering. I'm delighted that our school is a STEM school, because now I get to do a little of both. At UC Davis I had the opportunity to be the Student Director of the California Aggie Marching Band and work with Dr. Lawrence E. Anderson (who quickly became another of my heroes). I earned my Bachelor's Degree as well as my Teaching Credential at UC Davis.
I have two adult sons that I am extremely proud of. My older son is a graduate of the University of Minnesota in Aerospace Engineering and Mechanics and lives in St. Paul with his wife. My younger son is a graduate of Northern Arizona University in Mechanical Engineering. The other member of my family is my beagle, Charlie.
Students who get to know me will tell you that I LOVE the color PURPLE! My pens are purple, my pencils are purple, my whiteboard markers are purple.......... I also love to watch sports. My favorites are Hockey, Football, Baseball and NASCAR.
