Hello student's, parent's, and fellow family members! 

I am very excited to be starting my first year as the new music specialist for Southridge Elementary. Myself and the Southridge staff can't wait to meet all of you, regardless of the medium! I have a lot of exciting lessons planned for both the virtual and in-person classrooms designed to engage student's creativity, and to further build upon their love for music and the fine arts. Communication is crucial to creating trust and optimal learning for our students. Please feel free to direct any questions or concerns you might have throughout the school year my way. With the fluid plans for this school year, I will make it a priority to utilize technology to share with you all the positive and wonderful musical journeys your students will embark upon. I'm looking forward to working with all of you, GO ROCKETS!!!
