Teaching Philosophy

“Teaching children (which I have since age 16) has been a consistent joy and fulfilling task in my life for years, and seeing growth and knowing I’m making a difference in a child’s life is thrilling. I only hope that I can be the incredible mentor for a child that my voice and piano teachers in high school were for me.

I love to crochet. Chances are you’ll see me with a ball of yarn and a needle during any break during show rehearsals!
