Degrees and Certifications:
Hello! I am excited to be directing the orchestras here at Lindbergh High School, as well as teaching and assisting with strings at several of our elementary and middle schools. I graduated from Lindbergh in 2009, after attending Crestwood Elementary and Sperreng Middle. During my time as a student in this district, my love of string music and teaching was inspired by my wonderful orchestra teachers, including Ms. Michelle Howard and Mrs. Sue Rola. After graduation I went on to earn my Bachelor of Music Education at Missouri State University, then my Master of Music Education with Violin Emphasis at the University of Oklahoma, where I completed a thesis on the topic of fiddle music in the public schools. I spent the first three years of my professional career teaching orchestra at a Fine Arts Academy in Austin, Texas. I am honored now to return to my home district to carry on the tradition of excellence within the orchestra program here.
