I have been teaching band for 23 years. I have taught in Alabama and Georgia.  I have a passion for music but my biggest passion is impacting the students I teach and helping them to be the best person they can.  I love my students as if they are my own children.  My relationship with my students is that of a mother loving their child.  I want to see my kids succeed not only in music but in life.  I love the kids of Sumter County and take pride in teaching here in Americus.  I have had so many wonderful kids to come through the band program here and am excited to see what God has instore for me and my kids this upcoming year.  

"Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways submit to him, and he will make your paths straight."  Proverbs 3: 5-6
