Degrees and Certifications:
I LOVE teaching! And I am so excited to be at King school.
I started my career in AAPS as a music teacher as my bachelors degree- from Wayne State University- is in music. Music Therapy to be precise. I worked as a music therapist and a vocalist/flutist in Detroit. Ten years as a music therapist 45 years as a musician. I still sing as much as I can. I even incorporate singing in the ELL lessons I teach.
I have a MAT a Masters of Art in Teaching also from Wayne State University. I also have an endorsement in ESL. I have been in many Ann Arbor elementary schools over the past 12 years. King is at the top!
I live with my husband Don, my two sons Travis-23 and Dylan- 20 my puppy dog Riley and my cat Hershy in Hamburg Twp. We do a lot of tent camping and Michigan travels.. And of course we go to many concerts including the Detroit Jazz Festival and the Detroit Symphony Orchestra.
So glad to be teaching this year as an ELL teacher at King.
