Degrees and Certifications:
I am an elementary music specialist and this is my 5th year of full-time teaching. I first worked at Twin Rivers Unified School District for 4 years as a travelling music specialist for three sites at a time. In 2019, I decided to join San Juan's music team and I'm now teaching at Carriage Drive Elementary 4 days a week and at Arlington Elementary every Thursday.
My mother is also a music teacher and I was inspired by her to also pursue teaching music. I didn't realize how much I would love it until I actually started teaching children! So now I always look for professional development on how to be a better teacher by going to workshops and study Education Through Music and Orff-Schulwerk.
I have also been studying flute for about 15 years and have always been in a large performing ensemble. I teach band before-school on Tuesdays, Wednesdays, and Fridays.
