I grew up in Baltimore, MD where I started singing at an early age and have sung in church and synagogue choirs ever since. After graduating from Loyola College with a degree in Vocal Performance, I began teaching and eventually got my masters degree in Elementary Education. After 20 years of teaching and designing curriculum for both public and private schools, I moved to San Diego and was the Director of Early Childhood and Schools Programs at Recreational Music Center until they closed in 2020. Now, I'm working as an independent contractor teaching group classes and bringing music programs to schools in the San Diego area. When I'm not teaching, I direct the Children's Choir and Handball Programs at First UU San Diego.
Here I am teaching at Recreational Music Center. I Directed the Early Childhood program and taught 9 classes weekly for students ages 1 - 4.
Me at Southwest Baltimore Charter School where I designed the music program and taught for 5 years during which time we won awards for the best Arts Integration program in Baltimore City.
ON WITH THE SHOW
Here I am rehearsing for one of the MANY school shows I've directed. Working for the public schools system, one gets good at producing a show on a shoestring budget!
