About Me

I've had the joy of teaching Elementary music and movement as an Orff-Schulwerk specialist for over 35 years.  I began my career in Douglas County -  teaching in 3 different Elementary Schools (Plum Creek, Larkspur and South Ridge) for 20+ years, before moving to New York in 2002 to marry my husband, Julius.  While I was there, I taught at Trevor Day School, a private school in Manhattan for 11 years.  I returned to Douglas County for the start of the 2013 school year in order to be closer to my grandchildren, who seem to just be growing up too fast.

I have two grown children.  My son teaches Middle School Social Studies, Language Arts and Tech and lives in Colorado Springs with his wife and 3 children - ages 5, 3 and 1.  My daughter and her husband live in the Springs, too.  They have 2 children - ages 3 years and 6 months.  My step-son is currently living with us.  It's great to be living so close to all of them.

My husband, Julius, and I enjoy hanging out, making music and cooking together.  We are a couple of foodie musicians.  We also like to travel.

In addition to teaching Elementary music, I teach adults in the summer in various Orff Schulwerk Music and Movement Teacher Education courses.  I serve on the Executive Board of The American Orff-Schulwerk Association as Recording Secretary and I'm active in our district music work and the local Orff chapter.  I also direct the choir at our church.
