Degrees and Certifications:
I am so excited for this year at Ridgeview!
I mostly grew up here in Colorado Springs, but spent 4 years living in High Wycombe, England. I have been a musician for many years. My main instrument is the cello, which I started learning in 4th grade. I played in various community orchestras growing up and even went on tour to China with the Colorado Springs Youth Symphony. I attended the University of Nothern Colorado where I earned my Bachelor Degree in Music Education and taught orchestra at a school in Greeley during my junior and senior year of college. I moved back to the Springs to student teach and have been teaching elementary music here ever since.
I love teaching music and I'm looking forward to all the fun experiences and performances we'll have this year. I aim to inspire a lifelong love of music in my students and help them build creativity and expression. One of my favorite things to teach is world music with Mr. Maraca, who travels around the world and sends us emails to help students learn about the music and cultures of different countries. Recently, he learned to travel through time and helps teach music history, too!
Let's have a great year!
