Hello! I am your child's music teacher at Oakview Elementary. I also travel to each of the elementary schools to teach beginning strings to 5th grade students. This is my 8th year in teaching music but my third in Ashland Independent Schools. I am so excited to be a part of your child's education in the Ashland family. Music is my passion and I am so blessed to be able to share it with your child.
Though I am orignally from northern Ohio, I am a graduate of Kentucky Christian University in Grayson, KY. I met my wife there in the music and education departments. She is a Kindergarten teacher at Crabbe Elementary. Together, we have two wonderful children. Our oldest is a third grade student at Oakview and my youngest is in the first grade at Oakview as well. I received my Master's degree in Music Education from Kent State University in Ohio and am currently working on my Rank 1 in school administration.
In addition to teaching, I also serve as the music director at Fairview Baptist Church in Westwood. If there is anything I can do to help better your child's school year, please do not hesitate to contact me at any time. Because I travel among all of the elementary schools, it may be hard to get a hold of me by phone. Email is the best way to contact me. I am looking foward to a wonderful year!
