• This is my third year of teaching K-5 General Music in New Richmond at Hillside Elementary. I graduated from Luther College in Decorah, Iowa, in May of 2018 with a Bachelor of Arts degree in Music Education, with a focus in instrumental music and trombone being my main instrument. I grew up in Port Byron, Illinois, where I enjoyed participating in band, choir, and soccer, among other things. At Luther, I was involved with choir and band every year, most recently being a member of Collegiate Chorale and the Luther College Concert Band. 

    Outside of the music classroom, I enjoy running, biking and golfing, rooting hard for my favorite Chicago teams, and spending time with my friends.  

    I am thrilled to start my third year at Hillside this fall and can not wait to meet all of the great students that will come into my classroom. It will be a great year of learning and making music together!
