Meet the Teacher
It is my privilege and joy to return to Fountain Valley School District as an elementary music teacher at Cox and Gisler Elementary Schools. It is my mission to create a safe, positive, and fun learning environment which meets the needs of all learners for students to experience the joy and life-changing power of music education.
I am passionate about music education. I knew I wanted to be a music teacher since my senior year of high school singing in my school's choirs. I am a proud graduate of Biola University where I earned my Bachelors of Music Degree in Music Education: Voice and Choir Emphasis, a Minor in Biblical and Theological Studies, and my Single Subject Teaching Credential in Music (TK-12th grades). In college I sang with the Biola Chorale, Opera, and sang and conducted the Biola Men's Chorus. I have experience teaching TK-12 Music in the Garden Grove Unified School District, Anaheim Union School District, and Huntington Beach Union High School Districts. My current research interests include trauma-informed teaching practices, ADHD learning and teaching strategies, differentiated instruction for EL learners, child and adult vocal pedagogy, and developmentally appropriate teaching practices in the elementary music classroom.
