|I have been teaching music and drama at WLMS for 11 years. Prior to coming to Lee County I taught middle school in Hoke County and PreK-8 in Moore County. I have lived in North Caroilna for 13 years.
I have also taught music and drama as well as a few computer classes for the LCSS Kaleidoscope program for the past 6 summers.
I received my Bachelor of Science degree in General Music Education from the University of South Florida. My major instrument was voice. I also play clarinet and some piano. While in Florida I worked professionally as the soprano section leader and soloist for the Most Holy Redeemer church in Tampa. While in that position I recorded a CD with our choir entitled "Look For The Love".
In 2006 I received my National Board Certification in Middle/High school music. Working toward this certification was quite a challenge but it really helped me to learn more about myself as a teacher and better serve my students. In 2007, I was voted the West Lee Middle School teacher of the year for 2007-2008. What an honor!
While living in North Carolina I have worked professionally in theatre with the North Carolina Stage Ensemble and have done community shows in Sanford and Laurinburg. In 2007, I created Star Community Theatre , a summer, community theatre for the Sanford area.
I am also currently working toward my Masters of Education in Instructional Technology.
