Welcome back to a new school year! This will be my ninth year as the string teacher at Newtown Elementary, and I look forward to continuing to work with you and your children in the coming year. I have been a string teacher in Council Rock since 2000 , and this year, I will divide my teaching time between Newtown Elementary and Maureen Welch Elementary.
A little bit about me: I have violin performance degrees from Carnegie Mellon University and Ithaca College, and a teaching certificate from Temple University. Prior to teaching in Council Rock, I was a private violin instructor at a number of schools including Ithaca Talent Education, Corning Suzuki Strings, and the Academy of Children’s Music in Fort Washington, PA, where I also served as the performance director. I also spent seven summers performing and teaching as a member of the string faculty of the New England Music Camp in Oakland, Maine. Currently, I perform with the Bryn Athyn Orchestra and the Warminster Symphony .
My twin daughters, Isabella (Bella) and Francesca (Chessie) will be attending college this fall. Chessie is attending Franklin and Marshall, and Bella is attending Carleton College in Minnesota.
As a family, we enjoy nature through hiking, biking,puzzles, and bird-watching. I also love to read and to cook!!
I look forward to another great year at Newtown Elementary. Should you have any questions or concerns during the year, please feel free to contact me at email@example.com.
Wishing everyone a wonderful school year!
