Hello!  I am the Strings teacher for Towslee, Huntington, Crestview, Applewood, and Memorial Elementary Schools in the Brunswick City School District.  I have been teaching 5th grade Strings for 4 years, following my time at Towslee as their General Music teacher.  Last summer, I was honored by our veterans with Educator of the Year, and Ohio Teacher of the Year.

  • I obtained my Bachelor's Degree in Music Education at Miami University (Ohio) in 1997
  • I have a Masters of Education Degree in Instructional Technology from Kent State
  • I have been married for 16 years,  and have two children, ages 7 and 11
  • I taught Strings in Romeo, Michigan before coming to Brunswick City Schools
  • My primary instrument is the viola, but I started on the guitar - now I enjoy all kinds of instruments!
