I love sharing my love of music with young people, and hopefully fostering a love of music as well.
If you could choose another job for one day, what would it be?
Tell us one thing about you that people would be surprised to know or something you are passionate about besides teaching.
I enjoy building and restoring furniture. A good majority of the furniture in my home was built by me.
Share a fun and unique idea that you use in your classroom!
