I love teaching music! I taught in Georgia public schools for 28 years. At the elementary level, I served as a music education specialist, teaching general music to all students in grades K-5 and directing an afterschool choral group. In 1992 I received a grant from the Metropolitan Opera Guild which included two summers of training at both the University of Alabama and the Metropolitan Opera Guild headquarters in New York. With the help of this program, my 4th and 5th graders wrote, produced, directed, and performed two totally original musical plays under my tutelage. At the middle and high school levels, I taught choral music and music theory, directed competitive choirs, directed competitive plays and musicals, founded a drama troupe, and involved students in fine arts activities at local, regional, state, and even national levels. I love what I do!
