Degrees and Certifications:
BA of Music Education
I have been involved and loved music ever since I was very young. I recieved my BA of Music Education at Boise State University. Throughout my life I have performed in may operas and musicals. I currently sing soprano with the Boise Philharmonic Master Chorale, of which I serve on the board as well as on the board of the Boise Philharmonic. I also teach private piano, voice, and I am starting guitar.
The aspect that I truly enjoy about my job as the music teacher at Siena Elementary, is that I get to introduce children, students, to a variety of music. Some they like, and some, not so much, but I get to expose them to so many different types of music, music from other cultures, and songs in different languages. I also encorporate a lot of movement in my classes. I truly enjoy teaching students music theory, which we can then use with classroom percussion instruments....and....RECORDERS!!! (in the 4th grade) My goal is to teach students basic music skills and knowledge, so that they might have a life long love of music, whether that means learning an instrument, or simply enjoying singing with the radio.
