This is my 2nd year in the District and my first here at Ben Franklin/Montessori. I am ecstatic and excited to share my musical talents and help you discover the musicians within all of you. Let's make Music together!
I specialize in Instrumental and Vocal Music. Be prepared to sing your best and play to the best of your abilities. I am also trained in Kodaly, Orff, and Dalcroze Methods of teaching and I will be implementing them in our daily lessons throughout the school year- along with music from Around the World, different languages, and folk songs sung throughout our history!
I also teach Classroom Music at Elton Hills Elementary (All K-5) as well as serve as their Student Council Advisor.
I will be working closely with Mr. Benoit and Mrs. Lunde in ensuring a quality, equitable, inclusive learning for all students at Ben Franklin in order to foster a positive learning community.
