Degrees and Certifications:
I've been teaching music for sixteen years. I taught band and general music at Peak to Peak Charter School in the Boulder, Colorado school district for four years, where they also use Core Knowledge Curriculum. Before coming to KCS, I directed the bands at Ketchikan High School for a few years before moving to full-time at our school. This is my eighth year at KCS.
I have two daughters, ages eight and fourteen. Both of my daughters attend KCS, and I have really enjoyed seeing the school experience through their eyes. The Core Knowledge curriculum is a rich one, and I am always surprised by all of the neat ways that our teachers here implement it.
Besides playing trumpet, my hobbies include travel, learning new things about technology, and reading.
