Welcome to Mount Vernon Orchestra!!!
We are very lucky to have orchestra in 4th-12th grade here in the district. Many kids get the chance to make beautiful music with their friends and peers. We are developing lifelong skills that go far beyond the music room and far beyond our school years.
I have been teaching in Mt. Vernon for 15 years. I'm the oldest of 9 kids and grew up in and around Iowa City. I graduated high school from Iowa City High. I then attended the University of Iowa and received my Bachelor's of Music, performance and teacher certification. My teaching experience includes, 4 years in Lamoni, 2 years in Davenport and 16 years at the Preucil School of Music. I have two girls, who are very musically talented, 3 cats, 2 dogs, 1 bunny and several fish. My favorite thing to do in my past time, besides play music, is to read. I especially love to lay in bed on a lazy weekend morning and read.
