I always knew I was going to be a teacher but it wasn't until High School that I realized music was what I was going to teach.  I come from a family of teachers if fact, we joke that if we ever joined forces we could open our own charter school.  I also come from a family of musicians so it was natural for me to blend the two areas into my career.  

I have taught for 17 years in several different places throughout the United States.  I started my career in Los Angelas and taught there until I realized it was time to return to my roots in South Dakota.  Eventually I moved to Colby, Kansa where I met my husband, Shaun, and where we adopted my first child, Aidan.  After teacher there for three years an opportunity to teach back in the Black Hills of South Dakota was too perfect for my family to turn down.  We loved teaching in SD and really felt at home there.  We had two more kiddos, Aislin and Eli to complete our little family.  When my husband was offered the principal position in Bertrand it was a no brainer for us to move and since my husband grew up in Holdrege our family has fit in seemlessly.  

I am excited to start teaching again after a year haiatus and cannot wait to get started with the kids.  Teaching is my passion and I hope throughout my tenure you can see the excitment I have for music but especially for my students.
