Welcome to the Willow Wood Orchestra Page! I am so excited to make music with you this year. This is my 7th year teaching and I look forward to being part of the Tomball ISD community. Prior to this I taught three years at Klein Cain High School and three years at Schindewolf Intermediate in Klein ISD.
I am a graduate of the University of South Carolina with a degree in Music Education and Leadership Distinction in Research. While at USC, I had the chance to teach at the University of South Carolina String Project teaching local students how to play string instruments. I also played in the Symphony Orchestra and presented at the American String Teachers Association Convention in Kentucky. I am an active member of the Texas Music Educator Association and freelance as a violinist in local groups. When I am not teaching, I enjoy visiting family when possible, cooking, and spending time with my husband and two dogs.
The Willow Wood Orchestra program consists of 100 members in grades 6-8. Orchestra members begin in 6th grade at our feeder campus Northpointe Intermediate. There are four 7th and 8th grade performing orchestras at Willow Wood JH (Sinfonietta, Concert, Philharmonic, Chamber). These ensembles consistently earn Superior ratings in concert and sight reading UIL contests.
