The 2020-21 school year will mark my 34th year teaching elementary music! I have been blessed to teach my entire career in School District Five of Lexington and Richland Counties. Having taught in the Irmo-Chapin area for so long, I am now beginning to teach my second generation of students! Prior to teaching, I completed a BMEd in instrumental music and a Masters in Music Performance (oboe) from the University of South Carolina. I received my National Board Certification in 2003 and renewed it in 2013. I also had the pleasure of playing 2nd oboe with the South Carolina Philharmonic for 14 years.
