Contact Me

I have been teaching in Seguin for 12 years.  This is my 6th year teaching Music Elementary.  Total teaching years is 17 years.  My bachelor degree is Music Education (all-level) form Texas State University.  My hobbies are reading, cooking, crocheting, fishing, hunting, and drawing.  Love doing art projects.

 

I had a great summer and I am ready to start the new school year.  We started previewing Beatbox techniques at the end of the school year.  Students were excited to know that we will begin learning this new technique in music class.  Many of the kids know about Beatbox music and have demonstrated interest in this subject.  I hope they are just as excited as I am to do some new activities with this style of music.

 

Let's get started in creating, composing, dancing, singing, playing on instruments, and experience music.
