K-3 Music

5-8 Music Ministry
 
Years at Holy Trinity:  This is my first year at Holy Trinity and I am loving it! 
 
Education: I have a bachelors degree in music education from Kansas State University and a masters degree in education from MidAmerica Nazarene University. 
 
Work Experience: This is my tenth year of teaching music.  I have previously taught in Louisburg, KS, the Olathe School District, and Nativity Catholic School.   I took five years off from 2009-2014 to stay home with my two boys!
 
Teaching Philosophy:  My primary goal is to instill in students an understanding and appreciation of music.  I love reaching the students at their developmental level and watching them learn and grow in our faith through music.
 
Passions/interests:  I enjoy spending time with my two boys and being active.  I like to cook desserts and try out new recipes....I have a weakness for looking at recipes on Pinterest and buying cookbooks!  I have far too many!  When I have some down time, I love to read....anything! 
 
Favorite Scripture:  My favorite scripture reading is the well-known 1 Corinthians 13:4-7: "Love is patient, love is kind..."  My husband and I chose this reading for our wedding, and I get a little choked up every time I hear it.  Such a simple reading, but the words are so strong and true, and they set the perfect standard for any relationship and how we treat each other.
