About Me 

This is my 6th year teaching at Union 81, and 8th year teaching. I graduated from St. Xavier University with a Bachelor of Music Education in 2014. Students will see me in many places around the school! I teach music and band, am the school librarian, teach K and 4th grade Social Skills, assist with RTI, and may even sub for other teachers in the building. My favorite things are: music, books, anything purple, and Harry Potter.
