Hello, and welcome to my site. I have been teaching music at Phoenix Christian School PreK-8 since 2011. I received my B.A. in music education from Dordt College and an M.M. in music education from Kent State University. I currently teach every grade general music, recorders for 4th grade, and band for 5th-8th grade, coordinate our chapel services, serve on daily recess duties, keep the marquee on campus up-to-date, and compose new music for students to learn and perform at concerts. I am a part-time worship leader at Phoenix CRC. Outside of music, I enjoy gardening, love cats and dogs, writing poems, and playing Wii.
