    • Bio
      • I have my Bachelor of Music from UTA, my Masters of Music Education from TCU, and my Principal's Certification from UTPB in Odessa. I have had the pleasure of teaching Band, Mariachi, Guitar, Orchestra and was a professional performer back in the day. My first teaching job was at TCU as the departmental graduate assistant to the band and had a full-ride scholarship in music. I was fortunate to start my public school career teaching at Lee Senior High in Midland, TX where we went to State Marching contest, had bunches of All-Staters, and marched in the Presidential Inaugural Parade for George W. Bush. I played clarinet in the Midland/Odessa Symphony and Chorale while also teaching private clarinet and saxophone lessons in public schools in West Texas and at Midland and Odessa Junior Colleges where I had over 150 All-State clarinet and saxophone students. Many of my former students are music teachers, professional players, college faculty, and two students have their Ph.D. in Music. I taught at Texas Tech Band & Orchestra Camp for 15 summers as well as shorter times at Baylor University and West Texas A&M. I have adjudicated and taught the All-State 6A clarinets and picked the All-State clarinet cuts for TMEA many times. I was asked to take over Nimitz Jr. High Orchestra the third week of school, fell in love teaching orchestra, and will never go back. My orchestra at Nimitz taped for the State Honor Orchestra contest and we placed midway one year.
      • I am in my 37th year of teaching but only 30 for public schools. I am proud to be a Bobcat because I enjoy the Benbrook community which I have been a part of since I was 10 and want to give back by teaching at BMHS.
      • I teach because I love to help foster the wonderful world of music to my students while helping them be the best they can be in life.
