Q: How many years have you taught at West?

A: Six years

 

Q: How did you get into teaching?

A: I would say that I accompanied. I was originally a pianist and I played piano for choirs. I really liked being in the classroom and decided that I would go back to school and get a second degree. That’s when I went back into teaching.

 

Q: What classes did you teach?

A:  Mixed choruses, women’s chorus, and show choir.

 

Q: How do you think you’ve impacted your students?

A: I hope in a good way. We have a lot of fun in the classroom and I want them to love music as much as I do. I think that’s how I would impact them.

 

Q: What will you miss most about being at West?

A: I think that West is a awesome community. There’s such a great mix of students from all different rural backgrounds and city backgrounds. Thatś what makes this building so great, is the diversity among all the kids.

 

Q: How has teaching impacted your life?

A: Because of all the friendships, it has enriched my life.

 

Q: What do you plan to do after retirement?

A: Probably some playing (piano), and I will eventually do some subbing. For right now, I’m just going to lay low and do some traveling.
