I am the performing arts instructor for the high school vocal music program.  I am currently working on my doctorate in curriculum, teaching, and teacher education. I have been teaching in Alachua County Schools for 29 years.  I love to teach children how to learn through music, dance, and drama. I enjoy being with my family, singing, gardening and playing with our Morkie (maltese/yorkie), Huck. My Favorite television shows are Criminal Minds and NCIS. I listen to all kinds of music, but jazz calms my soul.

“Music speaks what cannot be expressed, soothes the mind and gives it rest, heals the heart and makes it whole, flows from heaven to the soul.”  unknown
