    This is my 21st year teaching.  Oh, how time flies! My husband, Jose, and our beautiful baby girl Arianna Desiree, who is now 5 years old, are proud to reside in Rincon, GA.  We have 2 precious puppies,  LeeLee, and Harley, who are spoiled rotten!  I began taking piano lessons at the age of 5.  Throughout school, I was involved in chorus and band.  I attended Milligan College in Johnson City, TN, where I received my B.A. in Music Education. I attended Georgia Southern where I received my Masters in Educational Leadership. I also received my doctorate, Ed.D., in Curriculum Studies with an emphasis in music education from Georgia Southern. I presented at the Georgia Education Research Association Conference in 2021, and the Curriculum Studies Collaborative in 2021 and 2022.  at  I love both music and learning! As an adult, I began playing guitar and this instrument has found a place in my heart as well. Music has always been an important part of my life.  It has opened many doors for me and brought me a sense of joy and peace.  One of the greatest joys as a music teacher is watching my students become musicians in their own right. Then they can experience the joy of music making for themselves. Music education is vital to a well rounded learning experience. I am also humbled to serve as the worship leader for my church where I get to play in an amazing band.  I truly believe in music and the power of the imagination to  unlock potential in our lives.  Please feel free to contact me if you need anything.  My classroom is always open, so please stop in and join in the fun of music making!
