She also has been certified in Kodaly Level I & II. She believes that a teacher can only be as effective as the extent of love they possess for the subject they are teaching, and she wants to instill that love in her students and share the opportunities that she received from her former teachers. Her goal is to validate the importance of music to human development, foster intellectual development, and cultivate the creativity of the mind and passion of the soul. She is honored to have the privilege of teaching the students of Cottonwood Creek Elementary School!
