My Why Story

I was born and raised in Arizona. I grew up outside of Tucson until I was 18 when I left to attend school Eastern Arizona College. I received my Associate of Arts Degree there. I went on to attend Brigham Young University – Hawaii, where I received my Bachelor of Arts degree in Music. I chose to become a teacher because I love sharing my passion and teaching children to experience new things outside their comfort zones. I love to watcher their passions come alive and see the wonder in their eyes.

I taught private Music lessons for piano, voice, and ukulele for 12 years. I have been teaching 5 years now at San Tan visitng all grade levels. From preschool and lower elementary, to Middle school and High school.
