Professional: I taught 2nd grade for 7 years, but decided to resign to stay home with my children in 2015. It was at this point I decided to start teaching piano. I have played since I was 8 years old (under the most amazing teacher, Kearin Ragsdale) and studied it in college as well. I received a music degree and an elementary teaching degree from Adams State College.
Volunteering is important to me because it serves our community, sets a good example for my children, and helps my students. My most gratifying volunteer experiences always involve children. Whether I was a general ed teacher or a piano teacher, I love helping and working for children. I currently volunteer every week in my son’s classroom reading with students. I get to know each of those children. I also helped coach my daughter’s TBall team this past summer. In college, I was part of a volunteering organization called Circle K. We put on events and found ways to help out in the town we lived in.
Family: My husband Scott is an assistant principal at an elementary school in town. We’ve been married for 10 years. We have two children—Kayden (7yrs) and Elizabeth (5yrs). My son is currently learning piano, and my daughter is dying to learn!
