Hello, everyone! Though I'm now effectively retired after 34 years of teaching, some 20 of which involved SAB and SSA choirs, concert bands, recorder "herds" (anywhere from 50 to 100 kids at a time!), musical theatre, and jazz ensembles, I'm still very interested in the profession and am eager to take an active role in this group!
