    It is exciting to work with students and school faculty alike here at Wasatch High School. For many years I have had a great love for the world of music and the people associated with it.  Helping students become successful in music has brought me great joy. My own personal experiences in education have helped me develop my education philosophy, in that music is a vehicle to bring out the pure and good characteristics contained in each individual. 

    I am grateful for the many great teachers I have encountered.  No matter the subject area each has inspired me to work hard and become a better person.  Though their classes were not easy I knew each was passionate about what they taught and cared for each student.  I feel it a privilege to be working in such an important capacity and hope that I may continue to develop the necessary skills of successful teachers.
