Elementary (K-6th)

Although my major in college was music education, I took the time to focus on elementary as well as secondary. My teaching certificate covers k-6 self contained classrooms.


General Music

Hey All! So, you're interested in knowing more about music. You've come to the right place! I love music, and have known since I was 4 years old that I wanted to be involved in music. I earned a bachelor's degree in music education in college with a minor in music theory. I've participated in summer musicals, professional theatre productions, community orchestras, as well as all kinds of school related music. I taught middle school and high school band and choir for 9 years. There's so much out there in the world of general music, so give me a call or drop me an email and we can see what will work out for us to make some music together! Talk to you soon!


Study Skills

As a school counselor, I was charged with designing individual study plans for students who were struggling with school in general or a specific subject. I worked with these students on an individual basis, found their strengths and helped them build a study plan that enabled them to complete their work and succeed in their educational goals. I have seen this method of planning work for students as young as 5th grade all the way through college.


Trombone

Hi Guys! So, I am actually available to work with trombone and baritone players. I have a music education degree and was a middle school and high school band director for 9 years. Though percussion is my main instrument, I also played a LOT of low brass in college and afterward. And really, low brass instruments are so much fun! Regardless of your age, if you want to learn the basics or improve what you've already learned on trombone or baritone, I can help. Talk to you soon!


Trumpet

Hi all trumpet players! I have a college degree in music education and taught middle school and high school band for 9 years. I am confident that I can help your middle school trumpet player reach higher levels! My bands consistently received superior ratings at state festivals! So, grab your horn, pick up that music and let's PRACTICE! Talk to you soon!


Career Development

As part of my Master's degree in counseling, I am qualified to help people with career exploration and career development. There are many fun, interesting, and informative ways that an individual can begin to seek out the areas of work or career that are best suited to his or her own personality and desires. If you are interested in exploring career areas and avenues, or if you are currently working but are interested in finding some alternative paths for your career, I can help you find something that is suited to you!


ADHD

My masters degree in counseling as well as my internship in school counseling has offered me much opportunity to work with students who struggle with ADD/ADHD. I am adept in tutoring such students individually or in a small group as well as working with them as part of a class in the classroom setting. As a tutor, I can help your child catch up with his work as well as teach him some techniques to help while he's at school.


Dyslexia

I first encountered the struggles with dyslexia when my younger sister was diagnosed when she was in 3rd grade. I could see how hard school work was for her and I wanted to help in any way that I could! Fast forward several years as I found myself working as a school counselor. There were many students in my school who were struggling with dyslexia and not enough trained teachers to know how to help them. So I took some courses in working with students who have various learning difficulties and was able to not only help the students in my school, but also share with other teachers how to assist students who need special assistance. The experience was valuable to those students & I believe it can be to you & your student as well!


Macintosh

My experience in Macintosh work is varied and diverse. I am very well versed in Microsoft Word, Power Point and Publisher. I have used those 3 programs daily in my work as a teacher, counselor and minister to keep records, produce newsletters, brochures, movies/videos, conference presentations, and much, much more. If you are looking for someone to help with those specific programs, or computer usage in general: using the internet, safe document storage, scanning & saving pictures, or other things like that, I am your person!!! Please feel free to contact me for more information or to ask about your specific situation.


Microsoft Publisher

Microsoft Publisher is a fantastic program! I have used it professionally and personally to make cards, newsletters, brochures, business cards, basic signs, flyers, programs for theater and music events, and websites. All of these publications can be created in a variety of sizes and shapes. The program allows you to create completely from scratch using your own imagination or you can use any of the many templates they supply. I can help you get started, throw some ideas your way, show you the ropes and some short-cuts, and help proofread your final project! Send me an email!
