Hi! Welcome to the 2014-15 school year int he CMS Instrumental Music Department. I am very glad to be back this year! It is my 25th year of teaching and 15th year as an instrumental music teacher in the Crestwood Local Schools. I direct the sixth and seventh grade bands and assist with the eighth grade band. I also teach fifth grade trumpets and trombones at Crestwood Intermediate. I previously spent five years in the East Guernsey Schools and five years in the Ohio Valley Local Schools where I taught students from fifth grade through twelfth grade. I received my Bachelor of Music Education degree (BME) from Mount Union College (now The University of Mount Union) in 1990 and a Masters degree in Music Education from the University of Akron in 2006. I have done additional coursework at Kent State University and Lake Erie College. My primary instrument is the euphonium.
I live in Ravenna with my husband, Steve. We have a 2 year old son, Jameson, who is doing very well following his 16 months of chemotherapy. We greatly appreciate the support and concern everyone has shown for our family!
