    "Music washes away from the soul the dust of everyday life."   ~Berthold Auerbach

         Thank you for visiting my page!  I have the joy of working with some of the brightest,
    most beautiful students in the nation.  I have grown to love my students so much and I cannot wait to see them grow and prosper as adults.  They are both our present and our future; so valuable and precious now and yet are always learning and growing into their purposes and how they will bless and shape our future world.  
         With that in mind, let's get started with a quick tour!

    ONLINE LEARNING:  The district is enhancing it's virtual learning capabilities, so this page will show how to use Microsoft Teams.  
    CALENDAR:  Check this to see when assignments are due.
    ASSIGNMENTS:  Assignments will be posted here (which are linked to the calendar).  The same assignments and due dates will also be posted on Microsoft Teams.
    HOMEWORK:  Homework will be posted here (which is also linked to the calendar).  The same homework and due dates will also be posted on Microsoft Teams (under assignments).
    About Me:
    I have been singing since I was four, drumming since I was 13, writing music since I was 14, and playing guitar since high school.  I graduated from a really great music school at DePauw University in Greencastle, IN with a Bachelor of Music Education (Choral/General) I have taught music for many years and LOVE teaching middle school music and drum line.  

    Here are some more quotes about music! ๐ŸŽค๐Ÿฅ๐ŸŽน๐ŸŽง๐ŸŽผ
    "Music is what feelings sound like."   ~Author Unknown
    ๐ŸŽธ "I think its so cool that you can pick up the guitar and create something that didn't exist 5 minutes ago.  You can write something that no ones ever heard before.  You have music at your fingertips."       ~Michelle Branch
