Personal Background

This is my 5th year at Maroa-Forsyth High School, teaching 5th through 12th grade band students! In my 14th year of teaching, I have taught general music, band, and choir at the grade school, middle school, and high school levels throughout Northern and Central Illinois and Southeastern Wisconsin. My husband, Paul and I have been married since 2006 and we have two children, Dathan and Kinsley. We also have a 13 year Miniature Schnauzer named Phoebe.

When we aren't at MFHS events or hanging out on campus at Millikin, we all love spending time together and going to the beach!

Music really isn’t supposed to be perfect. It’s all about people relating to each other and doing something that’s really from the soul. It must come from the soul.
