The 2015-2016 school year begins my thirtyfirst year at Parley's Park Elementary. I have taught general music classes, as well as third, fourth, and fifth grade. I have an MA degree in instructional education, and I enjoy working with elementary school aged children.
I feel it is a pleasure working at Parley's Park in such a beautiful mountain setting. I feel fortunate to work with a staff that is committed to teaching excellence!
