I am the elementary music teacher at Hastings Elementary. This school year for 2016-2017 is my eleventh school year of teaching elementary music at Hastings Elementary for Duncanville ISD. I was chosen to be "Teacher of the Year" for Hastings for the 2015-2016 school year. I am currently "team lead" for the specials team at my school. I was also awarded "Lifetime Member of PTA" at Hastings for the many programs and performances I have done. I teach Kindergarten through fifth grade general music. I direct six programs a year, one for each grade level. I have a fourth and fifth grade choir I direct, and also provide music for different events like the good behavior parties, book parade, assemblies, field day, and I oversee music for the carnival. Working at Hastings is very personal to me since I attended Hastings as a student from 1992-1994. I love teaching elementary music and I am happy to be doing what I love. I love being a Hastings Husky!
I am also the K-6 District Music Coordinator for Duncanville ISD. As coordinator, I lead Staff Development meetings with other music teachers in the district, and oversee the All City Choir concert at the High School with all district choirs performing. I help coordinate different events the choirs in the district perform for the community like the Annual Holiday Craft Fair Bazaar and the Duncanville Christmas Tree Lighting after the Duncanville Christmas Parade. I also help coordinate the district music showcase.
