I recently earned my BM in Music Education and a Single Subject Teaching Credential from California State University, Long Beach. During my time at CSULB, I was honored to be a member of the President's Scholars Program. My main musical instrument is the flute and I pride myself on being a two time winner of the National Flute Association's Collegiate Flute Choir Competition. I regularly perform at NFA conventions and throughout the greater OC/LA areas. As an educator, it is my mission to instill a similar commitment to academic and musical success in my students. More than anything, I want to lay a solid musical foundation for my students while also instilling a lifelong love of the art. In my free time, I enjoy running, biking, and going to see a good movie or concert. I'm ecstatic to begin my first year as a Talbert T-bird, having spent the last two years working with various elementary schools within the Fountain Valley School District family!
