Where do you call home?
Savannah, TN

How long have you been in music education?
Over 10 years

What is your favorite part about music education?
The kids! I have fun subjects to teach, so we get to have lots of fun while we learn.

What is your favorite thing about USJ?
I love that my co-workers are like family.

What is a fun fact about yourself?
I can tie shoes super fast. A friend taught me a cool trick during Chemistry when I was in high school (that's all I remember of Chemistry - hahahaha!), and I still use it today. It's so funny to see the students' reactions when they see how quickly I can tie. And I have to tie a LOT of shoes in Early Childhood, so that skill has come in very handy.
