Why Do You Enjoy Being A Board Member?
I enjoy the opportunity to collaborate with other music educators from across the state and work toward making tangible contributions to the students and teachers in North Carolina. It has given me quite a bit of insight into not only how I teach, but how I approach my entire program.
Tell Us An Interesting Or Fun Fact About Yourself
I am a proud self-proclaimed nerd, and I keep a collection of Funko Pop Figures in my office at CRHS. These include characters from Game of Thrones, The Avengers, Ghostbusters, The Walking Dead, The Good Place, Mr. Rodgers, and more. Last year, after we had to cancel our band trip to Disney World because of COVID-19, I was gifted a Conductor Mickey Mouse figure by some graduating seniors.
