Classes: I am highly qualified to teach K-12 Music. I am also certified as a K-12 School Counselor.
Masters of Arts in Counseling Oakland University
Masters of Arts in Education Central Michigan University
Bachelors of Arts in Music Education Central Michigan University
I began teaching in 2002.
The 2016-2017 school year marks my fourth year as the school counselor at Richmond Middle School. Prior to being the school counselor, I spent eleven years teaching 5-12 band and general music here at Richmond Middle School and also at Richmond High School.
I attended Central Michigan University for both my music education degree and my first masters degree. I also attended Oakland University, where I earned my second masters degree, but I will always be a Chippewa at heart!
It was after being the band director for several years, connecting with my students and what was going on in their lives, that I realized I wanted to go into counseling. I realized I wanted to be able to sit down and talk more with my students about what was going on in their lives, but as the band director I just didn't have the time to do that. I am so blessed to now have this job and be able to support students with their personal and academic needs.
