Hobbies/Fun Facts

I love singing with children, incorporating American Sign Language (ASL) into lessons and combining music with meaningful motions and creative content. I also enjoy taking photos, nature excursions, trees, hikes, rainy days, descriptive writing, baking, crafting, and spending time with family.
