• It is my pleasure to serve as Pate's Creek general music teacher. This is my 2nd year at Pate's Creek and I am excited to see what this year brings! My teaching experience includes teaching orchestra in Clayton County and Fulton County. I have taught orchestra at the elementary, middle, and high school levels. I am dedicated to teaching as a means of creating and nurturing a lifelong love of music! After teaching at all three levels of school, I have determined that teaching at the elementary level is the most fun and rewarding. Last year was my first year teaching general music and it rejuventated my spirit to see kids take such an enthusiatic desire to learn. There is such a reward in seeing younger kids get excited about seeing instruments, hearing the sounds those instruments make, and showing a willingness to learn how to play those instruments. It was also rewarding to see the entusiam those kids showed playing those instruments for their parents at open house and PTA meetings. After 20 years of teaching, I am so happy to say that I have found my home and my calling in life!

    I hold a Bachelor's degree in Music from Valdosta State University.
