Welcome to Music and Choir!
This year marks my 11th year of teaching music and choir at Zumbrota Mazeppa Schools. Prior to teaching at ZM I served for a year in New Hampshire as part of an AmeriCorps program called City Year. I worked with at-risk youth through in-class support, mentoring, after-school programs, and community service projects. Before City Year I attended Concordia College in Moorhead, MN (go Cobbers!) where I graduated with a B.A. in Music Education. My time at college was mostly spent singing in choir where I was granted wonderful opportunities to sing all across the country and abroad on domestic and foreign tours. In 2016 I earned a M.A. in Educational Leadership from Saint Mary's University of MN.
The apple doesn't fall far from the tree they say, which is true for me since I grew up just North of Zumbro Falls and attended Lake City Schools for my K-12 education. I'm excited to dive in to another year of engaging ZM students in the exploration of music and practice of choral singing!
