                                                 About Me

I have been teaching vocal music in Baltimore County for 21 years. I have been at Edgemere Elementary for 10 years. I attended both Towson University and Notre Dame and continue to pursue educational opportunities . Right now I teach grades K-5 at Edgemere Elementary School. I play music professionally in addition to teaching. I have been performing for over 30 years and continue to enjoy the interaction with new audiences.I have been recognized by Laura Bush for writing a song “ No Child Behind”.This same song was used by Baltimore County Public Schools. My original Kid friendly songs on my C.D. Safety Dance have been distributed world-wide. I am happily married and have 3 great children. All of my children play sports and enjoy music and school. I believe that every person on Earth has music inside……we just show and appreciate it differently. Different is cool.
