Education (School & Degree):
Currently working towards my Master's in Music Education degree
B.A. Music, University of WI—Parkside
Certification in Piano Pedagogy and Literature
License Information: DPI License #515 (General Music K-12) and #511 (Choral)
Philosophy (and/or statement about joy of teaching):
Music connects children with the past, the present, and the future and gives them something in which to take pride. Music is all around us and it should be analyzed, interpreted, internalized, and appreciated. As Friedrich Wilhelm Nietzsche once said, “Without music, life would be a mistake.” After all, it would be a shame to deprive children of something that builds character and changes lives the way that music does.
Traveling with family, spending time outdoors with family, crafts, food (chocolate and Starbucks are my faves!), trivia questions.
