I am the Music Teacher at Park Elementary. I graduated from the University of Florida in Gainesville with a BA in Elementary Education with an Add-on in Early Childhood. I later received an MA in Reading from University of Northern Colorado. I taught preschool in Florida and in Durango for many years. I taught kindergarten at Florida Mesa and Park for 11 years before teaching music here at Park. I am in my fifth year as Music Teacher.
In my free time, I love to be outside with my dog, hike, sing and play piano, play games with family and friends too! I also love to read and watch good T.V.!
I will always remember our sweet little Mia as a second grader. We were singing a song together a week before she died. She didn’t speak up much but she did then. She shared that she loved that song so much and how beautiful our voices sounded together! Later we dedicated our performance to Mia.
The thing I am most proud of is raising my two children as a single parent. My son and daughter are grown now. They are smart, funny, productive members of society!
