Hello! It is my pleasure and honor to be the Upper Township Middle School General Music Teacher and Choral Director of both the UTMS and UTES. For over 15 years, I have been teaching music education, and this is my third year directing the UTES Choir for the Upper Township School District. My goal is to inspire students to have a life-long relationship with music and my commitment is to the improvement of the student. These students are my dream come true! Thank you!
