I have been teaching music in the public schools for 11 wonderful years! I received my Bachelors of Music in Vocal Music Education, minor in Vocal Performance, from Hope College, and my Masters of Music in Music Education from Western Michigan University. My husband Danny and I have been married for five years, and have a four-year-old daughter named Elaina, a two-year-old son named Lukas, and a baby boy named Korbin, who was born in August! My mother and I are both choir directors, and we have a lot of fun brainstorming ideas with each other, and supporting each other's programs. I've been teaching at Grass Lake since January of 2012 and I am so blessed to be a part of Grass Lake Schools. Our choir and band programs have been growing stronger every year, and I look forward to seeing even bigger successes in the year to come!
