Welcome! I teach choir and guitar for grades 6 through 12 at SCMS and SCHS. My days begin at the middle school and end at the high school.

The best way to contact me is by email. If you would like to phone, and leave a message, please do so at the middle school (777-1688). Please realize that depending on my work load for the week, it may take a few days for me to respond.
