The Alliance for Early Childhood Teacher Tribute (18-19)
As a teacher, I aim to instill music appreciation and performance ability in each of my students by developing habits of excellence, commitment, and creativity. I believe every individual has the potential to learn and perform at his or her highest level and can pay music forward as a gift to his or her community. I love working with parents and students on the development of beautiful tone and beautiful hearts.

When I'm not engaged in something music-related, I enjoy baking elaborate British Bake-Off recipes, reading all the books, and running off the calories I gain from baking.
My favorite book series is J.R.R. Tolkien's The Lord of the Rings, my favorite TV show is Chuck, my favorite Broadway musical is My Fair Lady, and my favorite meal of the day is afternoon tea.
I love the range of voices and emotions the cello can produce. High or low, thin or thick, tender or raucous, laidback or energetic, the cello conveys it all through a warm, enveloping resonance. It's the best thing in the world to share with others.
