Our Teachers

All of our teachers are passionate about music and the development of children.

They create a fun, informal, social setting that spurs engagement and supports each child's musical development.

I am excited to be returning to Sheridan with my family after 20 years in Portland, Oregon.  During college at the University of Portland, I committed to my passion of music while living in Salzburg, Austria, and I completed my BA in Music Performance with a focus on piano.  I then volunteered through AmeriCorps working with preschool literacy programs.  I completed my Masters of Education at Loyola Chicago, and taught kindergarten and third grade for ten years.  In addition to piano, I play guitar and have experimented with djembe and ukulele. I took my first Music Together® class when my daughter was 5 weeks old, and I am thrilled to be bringing this wonderful program to Sheridan families.
