The 2018-2019 school year begins my 12th year as Choral Director/Instructor at JHHS, and my 17th year of teaching. My classes include Advanced Choir, Women's Ensemble, Drama and Arts & Humanities.
Previously, I taught elementary music in Bullitt and LaRue counties, worked as a Church Music Director, taught private piano & voice lessons and served as Assistant Director/Tour Manager of the U.S.Army Soldier Show. I believe all those experiences led me to and prepared me for this position at JHHS.
In addition to teaching, I also serve as the Fine Arts Instructional Lead and Drama Coach/Director for the Drama Club's school play and musical. My degrees include a Bachelor of Music Performance (Voice/Piano) from Murray State University, a Bachelor of Music Education from Western Kentucky University, and a Masters of Education from Walden University. I also studied voice with Janice Harsanyi at Florida State University in the mid 80's.
My hope is that my love for teaching, the arts and for my students is evident, and that they take it with them to share with others in their lifetime.
