I am the Head Director of the band program at Raymond Mays Middle School. This will be my first year with Troy ISD and I am super excited! I will be teaching classes ranging from our two ensembles to three sections of beginner classes throughout the day. At our high school, I assist Mr. Honeycutt and Mr. Wainright with the Troy High School Band during both Marching Season and Concert Season.
I started teaching in August of 2016 at Gatesville ISD. I had the opportunity to graduate earlier thanks to the TIMS program at Tarleton State University. While at Gatesville, I coordinated and managed anything to do with Middle School Band. taught beginner woodwind classes, assisted with Color Guard rehearsals, and team taught with our High School Marching Band.
My husband and I have been married for three years now! We live in the Waco area. He is a band director with La Vega ISD. We both met through mutual distraction during a band rehearsal at Tarleton so we have been together since 2014. We have two pets: A sassy, fluffball named Crookshanks and a SUPER ENERGETIC (and crazy I might add) Welsh Corgi named Spanky.
When I am not at work, I am listening to music education podcasts -or- playing videogames… RPG is the way to go.
I am a BIG fan of Harry Potter. If you walk in my office, you will see SOOO many lego sets, pop figures and a couple of wands that I have acquired.
