I work well with kids because I enjoy inspiring the next generation of young musicians. Watching the enjoyment of my students as they are learning, showing teamwork, and bonding in the classroom is priceless. I love motivating my students to be the best that they can be. When I see my students wanting to continue on their music journey for the next year, that lets me know that I have done my job.

As a middle school band director, I worked with students who have special needs. Communication with parents are very key to know specifically what the student needs. I use differentitaed instruction to help my students learn and I do my best to accomodate any students who have certain needs.
Thank you Miss Dawn for being my great band teacher!
