Hello, my awesome artists!

That "AHA" moment on a child's face when they are successful is the most rewarding feeling!

I have been an art teacher for over 30 years. For more than 20 years I have been a proud Mahanay Star!

I don't have a job, I have a calling.

Allowing children to be creative, solve problems and understand there is more than one way to accomplish a task is very rewarding.

I love hearing my name when I'm out in public... it's always a former student saying hello.

Hello Mahanay Stars!

I have been teaching in Alief for more than 17 years. I have taught Intermediate and Middle School Choir, and Elementary Music. I am currently the Lead Elementary Teacher for Alief. I am honored to represent such a hardworking group of professionals.

In music, I like to bring fun and excitement to lessons, as well as real life examples. One of my favorite things is watching the faces of my students who are hearing various genres of music for the first time. I hope to help develop my students into blossoming musicians. I love when past students invite me to their concerts so they can show and be proud of what they have learned. My goal is for them to appreciate and understand music enough to want to continue it throughout their education and personal lives.
