Why did you choose Deer Park?
I chose to teach in Deer Park because I was drawn to the small and close knit community with deep rooted values in academics as well as the fine arts.

Why did you become an educator OR Why did you want to work for a school district?
I became an educator because I want to make an impact on children through music. I also wanted the ability to teach my students to celebrate differences and bridge gaps through music.

What is your favorite quote (who said it) or what is your personal motto?
“We are the music makers, we are the dreamers of dreams” -Arthur O’Shaughnessy

In two or three words, how do you see your most important function as an educator?
Advocate for life-long learning

What’s the best thing that happened during your first few weeks at Deer Park?
When students approach me, remind me their names, and ask how my day is going. They have been so patient and helpful while I learn their names!

What are you most looking forward to this school year?
I am looking forward to making music with students and performing for the Deer Park community.

What do you enjoy doing in your spare time?
I enjoy spending time with my boyfriend, Will and our new puppy, Penny. I love running, singing, and exploring the city of Cincinnati!

What is your favorite movie?
My favorite movie is Dumb and Dumber (the original 90’s one!)

Is there anything else you would like to share with the community?
I am excited to be a part of the Deer Park Community this year and look forward to making music and connections with the students at Holmes and Amity!

Achieving Excellence Together!
