I am the new music teacher at Rineyville Elementary and am excited for a great school year!!!
I am originally from Tompkinsville, KY. I graduated from Monroe County High School in 2011. I went on to receive my Bachelor's in Music Education from Western Kentucky University in 2015. I am currently working on earning my masters online in Special Education from University of Cumberlands.
This will be my first year at Rineyville and my third year as a music teacher. I was the Music/Band Director at Lewis County Middle School and Assistant Band Director at the High School in Vanceburg, KY for the past two years.
The primary instrument I studied in college was the baritone and trombone. I also enjoy playing the guitar and piano in my own leisure. Some hobbies of mine include going to concerts, reading, and hanging out with my friends and family.
Music Groups at Rineyville:
I have made specific pages on this website for each music group that students will have the opportunity to join. These include:
-4th District Treble Chorus (4th and 5th grade students who must audition)
-Rocket Choir (3rd, 4th, and 5th grade students who must audition)
-Rocket Choir Jr. (1st and 2nd grade students may join on a FIRST COME, FIRST SERVE basis)
-Rockin' Drummers (4th grade students may join on a FIRST COME, FIRST SERVE basis)
I have attached the Music Handbook that I developed for all after school music groups. Refer to that for policies I have about attendance, behavior, etc.
For any music group that your child is a part of, I have set up a Remind 101. You can receive information regarding rehearsals, concert dates, attire, etc. This is a great way to communicate with parents! Just go to the corresponding music group your child is a part of and there is a link to more information on how to sign up to receive reminders.
I am so excited for a great musical year at Rineyville Elementary and look forward to getting to know every student!!
Please feel free to contact me with any questions or concerns that you might have.
