The 2014 – 2015 school year is my 20th year of teaching, all with Huron Valley Schools. Before coming to Lakeland, I taught band and choir at Muir Middle School in Milford. I have also taught part-time at White Lake in both band and choir, and I also served as Dean of Students at Lakeland High School for a short time. I hold a Bachelor’s Degree in Music Education from Michigan State University, a Master’s in Teaching from MaryGrove College, and a second Master’s in Educational Leadership from Oakland University. I am also certified in Administration, K-12, in the State of Michigan. I am currently serving my 8th term as the President of the Michigan Competing Band Association.
It is an honor and privilege to be a teacher, and I cherish the experience to work with your students to help them on their educational journey as future leaders, educated citizens, and life-long learners.
My schedule for the 2015 – 2015 year is as follows:
1st/2nd hour – International Academy West Band (IAW 1st block class)
3rd hour – Wind Ensemble
4th hour – Symphonic Band
7th hour – Jazz Band (this class is a block class after school on Tuesday)
7th hour – Pep Band (this class is a block class after school on Thursday)
I am also the Lakeland Marching Band Director, and the Director of the Huron Valley Percussion (our winter drum line) which is a combined program of both Milford and Lakeland High School, as well as other local area schools.
