"All students deserve the opportunity to succeed."

I am a teacher who is currently working on completing my master's degree in elementary education. I have worked with students of all ages for a number of years. In addition, I have worked with many students with special needs, as well as students in alternative education programs.

I have an undergraduate degree from Western University with a major in History and a minor in Music. I also completed internships for both secondary and elementary education. In addition, I have GTC elementary teaching degree from Grand Valley State University, with a major in Social Studies. I am a very patient teacher, and I believe in using a variety of teaching methods in order to match students' learning styles. I look forward to hearing from you!

Elementary (K-6th)

I have completed the "Master of Education" program through Grand Valley State University. I have worked in a variety of school environments, including inner-city and rural schools. I have worked with students with special needs on a one-to-one basis during my time as a substitute teacher. All students learn differently, and I utilize diverse teaching styles to meet their specific needs and help them succeed. I have a major in history (WMU) and in social studies (GVSU). In addition, I have a minor in music (WMU).


All students learn differently and they learn at an individual rate. I enjoy using diverse methods of instruction to help each student succeed. I have a master's degree in education, and have taken numerous methods classes in reading. I enjoy helping students reach their highest potential.

General Music

I have studied classical music theory and history at WMU. I play a variety of instruments and have an appreciation for various styles of music. I play jazz, bluegrass, folk, and rock music. Each person who learns music enjoys it in a unique way. There are numerous styles to enjoy, and there are a variety of ways in which to learn music.

I play the piano, guitar, banjo, violin, and mandolin. I also play and sing in a band and host numerous jam sessions at my home. I have taken some voice lessons and know how to teach students to use proper techniques in singing. I prefer singing harmonies in groups, as that is what I have always done. I hope to be able to share my love of music with you, and to be able to learn together.


I have been playing guitar for twenty years. I currently play in a band called Luckydog. This band consists of guitar, banjo, mandolin, bass, and vocals. We play jazz, bluegrass, folk, and new age music. I play lead and backup on acoustic guitar.


All students learn differently and I like to use a variety of teaching methods in order to meet individual needs. I have a master's degree in education with double majors in history and social studies. I also have a minor in music. I enjoy using a diverse and flexible teaching style in order to help each student succeed.

Study Skills

I have completed the master's program in education through GVSU. I have taken numerous classes in teaching methods for diverse learning styles. I enjoy helping students to develop study skills that enable them to succeed.
