I began my music career in 1998 when I graduated from the University of Illinois, Urbana-Champaign. Since that time I have been lucky enough to teach music in wonderful places like Orland Park, Naperville and Wheaton-Warrenville and now am thrilled to teach here in West Chicago. I really enjoy making music and singing and I love children, so teaching music is the perfect job for me! I have earned a Master's Degree in Music Education from Kent State and am a member of the National Association for Music Education as well as the Greater Chicago Area Orff-Schulwerk Association. I attend monthly workshops to stay current in the field of music education and I read magazine articles and research best practice so that the students at Indian Knoll are making the most out of every music class with me.
