Thank you for visiting the band webpage! 
    I graduated from UW-Madison with a major in Music Education.  I taught middle school band for three years in Illinois while earning my Masters degree in Instrumental Music Education from VanderCook College of Music in Chicago.  Since then I have taught middle school and high school band for seven years in Cambridge, Wisconsin before moving up to New Richmond with my family.  
    I have been teaching at NRMS for eight years and thoroughly enjoy my position here.  I teach 6th,7th, and 8th grade bands, marching band, as well as various other band events throughout the year.  We perform three concerts per year, we march in four parades in the summer, and we travel to various places to perform and enjoy music.
    Aside from my passion for music, I enjoy reading, traveling, watching athletics, and spending lots of time with my family.  I live in New Richmond with my husband, 2 daughters, and 3 dogs.
