About the Director
I grew up in Laingsburg, a smaller town just northeast of Lansing. After high school, I decided to pursue a music degree from Central Michigan University with a focus on music education and tuba performance. While at Central, I held several responsibilities around the school of music including backstage work and performance management, an gained a lot of teaching experience in districts near Mount Pleasant. I have taught student who play low brass and other instruments privately on a weekly basis, as well as small and full group instruction in nearby districts. While at Central, I was a part of the CMU Wind Ensemble, Symphony Orchestra, Central Foundation, and AMC brass quintet. I also played in numerous other groups outside of CMU such as Midland Symphony Orchestra and Paradigm Brass. I completed my pre-student teaching in the spring of 2016 at Clare Primary in grades k-4, and just finished up my student teaching at Haslett Middle and High School in grades 6-12 the fall of 2016. I graduated in December of 2016 with degrees in Music Education and Tuba Performance.
I will be using the Remind app for communication with students and parents. To enroll in students Remind classrooms, click on their specific class, and there are instructions for each class on their pages. The link to the left leads to a website that outlines some of the features about Remind.
