I am so excited to join the Botelle family this year!!
Since leaving my corporate career for teaching eight years ago, I have been blessed to have the best, most rewarding job ever - helping students to develop a love for music and guiding them to discover that they truly are musicians!
I began my musical journey at the age of 5, when I begged my mom to let me take piano lessons, just like my older brother. Spoiler alert-he quit, but I fell in love! I joined the band at school in 4th grade on the flute, so while the flute is my original band instrument, I really do enjoy playing all of them while teaching my students!
I worked in the Hartford, CT area for the past several years as a middle school band director and elementary instrumental teacher, and am excited to bring that experience with me as I begin working with the students and families at Botelle.
Speaking of families, I have 2 awesome children and 2 adorable cats (Simba and Oscar). My son plays the trombone, my daughter plays the violin, and Simba and Oscar love to sing...well, more like "meow"...but we do consider ourselves to be a pretty musical family!
I am at Botelle on Mondays (5th & 6th) and Fridays (3rd & 4th). Please feel free to email me with any questions about the instrumental music program!
