Del Valle Middle School
I am blessed to serve as Director of Bands for Del Valle Middle School after teaching several years in Arkansas and Texas with all facets of music grades K-12. I earned a Bachelor of Arts from the University of Arkansas at Monticello, a Master of Music from Northwestern State University of Louisiana, and am currently pursuing a master’s degree in Educational Leadership from Arkansas State University. My experiences as a musician range from playing clarinet in bands and chamber ensembles to playing saxophone in jazz bands, as well as singing in choirs. My favorite thing about teaching is definitely the students – it’s always a wonderful feeling seeing the light bulbs go off when they learn something new and master a new skill. For students, I wish to guide them into becoming the best possible people, students, and musicians they can possibly be.
