I was inspired by my music teacher to become a music therapist prior to becoming a school counselor 12 years after that first goal was completed. I was also inspired by my first principal Freda Harter who encouraged me to sing solos and to become a leader in my class. Tell what inspired you or who inspired you. I attended an elementary school that was from Kindergarten to 7th grade. I loved being selected to work in the school store both 6th grade and 7th because it taught me important leadership skills. I also was inspired by my band director and choir director in high school because even though I made good grades my passion was music and that kept me involved and motivated throughout school.
I am looking forward to meeting new 3rd graders and seeing all the students returning to Belle Heth. I am looking forward to sharing guidance information and team building with all grade levels at Belle Heth. I am also excited about listening to students and sharing all kinds of interactive games related to guidance standards. Additionally I am looking forward to teaching 5th grade and 6th grade bucket drumming skills as well as music computer writing skills, hand bells at Christmas and other enrichment ideas.
