;A little bit about me: I grew up in Elba, NE and graduated from Elba Public Schools. I went to college at Central Community College in Columbus, and Hastings College in Hastings, NE. In 2013 I graduated from Hastings College with a Bachelor of Music degree with high distinction in Music Education. I completed my student teaching semester in St. Paul Public Schools where I taught 5-12 vocal and instrumental music. For a year and a half after graduating, I was a substitute teacher in 6 different school districts in central Nebraska. Centura is my first full time teaching position, 2018-19 will be my 4th year in this great district! I absolutely LOVE music; I have participated in band and choir since I was in elementary school. In addition to singing, I also play clarinet, saxophone, piano, and I am working on learning guitar. I currently live outside of Saint Paul with my husband of 5 years, my son, and our black lab Lulu. When I'm not at school, or participating in music activities, I enjoy reading, crocheting, art, playing with my dog, and spending time with family.
