I have been teaching music in APS (Patrick Henry and Fleet) since 2003, after spending four years teaching in rural Georgia. I feel so lucky to be a part of our vibrant Arts community in Arlington! I live in Alexandria with my husband Bill, two children Emily and Alex, and Puffball the poodle. I achieved National Board certification in 2012, and I’m certified in the Orff method of music education. In 2017 I was honored to be selected as Patrick Henry’s Teacher of the Year. In music class, we value everyone’s ideas as we create together and have a lot of fun! Check out our twitter at @APSFleetMusic.

Fleet Music Department

I have had the pleasure of teaching general and vocal music at Patrick Henry and Fleet since 2013.  I am originally from Cincinnati, Ohio (GO BENGALS!), and have enjoyed being an Army Wife since 2005.  My husband Ross is a bass drummer in the Old Guard Fife and Drum Corps, which means we will be stationed here for the rest of his career! Previous to this assignment, we enjoyed traveling with the Army Band and living in Kentucky, North Carolina, Arizona, and Texas.

I graduated from Bowling Green State University in 2005 with a degree in Music Education, K-12. I enjoy reading, running, knitting, and anything chocolate! Our daughter, Cecilia (Cece), was born in 2016 and she has been keeping our 2 cats on their toes ever since!  My two younger brothers still live in Cincinnati and we always enjoy visiting our nieces, Evie and Duffy!  I love watching the young musicians of Fleet grow each year and look forward to many years of beautiful music to come!
