About the teacher

     Hi, I have been teaching music at Nottoway Intermediate school for ten years.  I am married to Lt. Cmdr. John Klag of the NJROTC program at the high school.  We have three boys, a dog and two cats. Our boys are out conquering the world on their own.  In my free time I enjoy gardening and renovating my home.
     Music has been a huge part of my life since I came into the world surrounded by bluegrass/country and gospel music. My early career was spent as a professional soloist and singer/actress in opera, professional choruses and musical theater.  I have worked in children's music since I was twelve from teaching Bible school music to directing summer music theater camps and children's choirs from preschool to youth.
