My Students

The students at my school are amazing. The kids participate in many activities, and Band is just one of the fantastic elective offerings at our school. The students at my school are fun, well-rounded, and eager to learn.

Our community is very supportive and they work together with the schools to ensure the very best education for the students.

I have been teaching in the same district and in the same school for over 20 years. It is a positive place to be!

My Project

Our Band instruments are in major need of repair every year. This past year, the repair bills were so high, I had to choose not to repair some of our instruments. Some instruments are beyond repair. We need to start replenishing the inventory so our kids can continue to perform at a high level. The students who use these flutes will benefit from a quality music education on a quality instrument, not one that is in constant need of repair.

Starting with the top voice in the band, the FLUTE will start us on our way to rebuilding our inventory.

Any support we can get will enhance the overall Band experience at Muir Middle School.
