Meet the Music Teacher
Degrees and Certifications:
Music has long been a passion of mine and I am looking forward to sharing an enjoyment of music with the students this year.
I am a graduate of Judson High School as well as a 2001 graduate of Stephen F. Austin State University with a Bachelor of Arts in Music. While at SFASU, I had the privilege of studying clarinet with Ms. Janis Brown and Dr. Raphael P. Sanders Jr. During my studies at SFASU, I performed in many ensembles under the direction of Mr. Fred J. Allen and Mr. Brian Britt. While attending SFASU I had many opportunities to excel in leadership positions. I was a member in good standings of Kappa Kappa Psi (KKΨ) the National Honorary Band Fraternity as well as CO for the Pershing Rifle Company at SFASU which is a military-oriented fraternal organization. Upon graduation from Stephen F. Austin State University I accepted the Music Specialist position at Woodlake Elementary, which was my elementary school as a child.
Through participation in high school and college bands and organizations I learned to hold myself and others to a high standard. I will daily strive to be the best teacher for your child but expect your child meet me in the middle and work toward a common goal. 2019-2020 is an exciting year at Woodlake Elementary School and I am looking forward to a musical year.
