I am so excited to be your child's music teacher this year!  This is my first year at Black Mountain Primary/Black Mountain Elementary and my 13th year teaching music in North Carolina; I most recently taught music at Hominy Valley Elementary and Woodfin Elementary for 7 years.  

I grew up in Burnsville, NC and graduated from Mountain Heritage High School in 2001.  I received my Bachelor of Arts in Music Performance and Latin American Studies from Guilford College.  I am Kodaly certified and have a Master of Music Education degree from Loyola University in Baltimore, Maryland.
