My Students

As a music teacher, I get the privilege of teaching, knowing and loving each and every student that comes into our school. It is truly the best part of my day when the littlest students come up for hugs and the oldest eighth-grade students come up for advice.

I teach the entire school of nearly 450 students!

They enter my classroom with enthusiasm and eagerness to learn. I can only hope that I can provide what they all need to succeed in their educational careers.

My Project

I direct our choir, comprised of students in grades third through eighth. Every year we wind up copying more music than we can count because we lose pages, forget our copies and just flat out don't remember where we put our music! We need a storage system in place so we always have our precious music! These file folders will do just that. The pencils will help us to mark what we need to remember and rhythm sticks and boom whackers will definitely enhance our performance!

We need music to SING!


Our holiday show is coming up fast and we're in need of new music to wow our crowd! We hope you can help us reach our goal and take our singing to new heights!
