Degrees and Certifications:
I was born in Columbus, Ohio in 1955. I am in my 40th year of teaching and it is still my passion. I am certified in both math & music and am a professional percussionist/drummer. I played drums for Dwight Yoakum when I was in high school and college. I graduated from The Ohio State University and received two degrees in Music Education and Performance. I then attended Miami University (Ohio) and graduated with a Masters's degree. I have taught in Ohio, Massachusetts, Rhode Island and Florida. I have two dogs named Joey and Daisy and love to play racquetball and chess. I also have many mechanical puzles which I bring into class from time to time.
