I have been teaching for 14 years, and the last 5 years have been here in the Dysart district. I've taught elementary general music (grades K-8), band grades 5-8, strings grades 5-8, junior high guitar, high school guitar, high school orchestra, and high school choir. My primary instrument is the string bass, and voice is my secondary. I received my BA in Music with an emphasis in String Bass from Truman State University in Kirksvillle, MO. I received my Master's in Music Education degree from Arizona State University.
My husband, Jonathan, and I were married in 2017. We love the outdoors, so we got married out in the woods in Prescott. We have 2 beautiful fur babies (the kind who go "woof!"), who are incredibly loved and also incredibly spoiled. :) We also like to participate in the Tough Mudder events, as well as the Ragnar Relay every year. What can we say, we like adventure!
I have a heart for teachers. I believe that I have a lot to contribute to the Governing Board. Being on the front lines and in the classroom has allowed me a unique perspective that will serve our community well.
