I’ve been in the Goddard School District since 2013 and I am honored to be the new 5-12 Director of Orchestras. I am very excited to continue the tradition of excellence in the orchestra program and to support the growth of the instrumental music program.
I’ve been teaching instrumental music since 1999. Prior to Goddard, I taught at Wichita Heights High School (my alma mater) and directed the orchestra, marching band, pep band, concert bands, and jazz ensembles. Additionally I taught the music theory class, served as the AVID site coordinator for 3 years and the AVID elective teacher for three years. I have been blessed my many fabulous students, parents and families throughout my career.
Tom and I married in Negril, Jamaica on July 9, 2011. I have a step daughter, step son-in-law and a grandson.
I love to golf in my free time. Tom and I love the travel!
