🎶 Hi all!
Let's embark on a harmonious journey of music and learning together. As the Vocal Music Director, I'm thrilled to guide our students through an exciting year of musical exploration. I believe that learning is a two-way street, and I'm eager to be inspired by my students just as much as I inspire them. I recently graduated with honors in May 2023 at the University of Nebraska at Omaha, achieving a Bachelor’s of Art in Music Entrepreneurship and a Bachelor’s of Music in Education with a PK-12 certification. Alongside, I've pursued a minor in Medical Humanities, showcasing my diverse interests and commitment to holistic education. My academic achievements culminated in a Summa Cum Laude distinction, a testament to my dedication. I am humbled to share that I'm among the select few nationwide to have received the prestigious National Association of Music Education Collegiate Professional Achievement Award. This recognition underlines my passion and dedication to music education, and I'm eager to channel this enthusiasm into our classroom. At the heart of my role, I instruct an array of vibrant ensembles, including Chamber Choir, Bel Canto, Cardinal Jazz Choir, Chorale, and Dance A. Each group is a testament to our shared love for music and collaboration. As an advisor of our school's Tri-M Chapter, I nurture a culture of musical excellence, fostering connections among students who share a passion for music and community. Outside of school, I've joined the Cherry Creek Chorale, a wonderful opportunity to engage with the broader musical community. This experience feeds my continuous growth as a musician and educator. Throughout the year, you'll find various resources on Google Classroom to enhance our musical journey. While we'll explore digital platforms, our core assignments and homework will be grounded in the tangible connection of pen and paper. Let's make this year unforgettable, full of melodies, growth, and shared experiences. Feel free to reach out with any questions or to discuss the magical world of music. Together, we'll create something extraordinary!
