BA in Music
I have a degree in Music Education and have been teaching music for the past eight and a half years. I was classically trained in piano and did my education emphasis in general and choral music. I am trained in the Orff method, so together your students and I will explore music through rhythm, instruments, singing and movement. I spent seven years teaching grades 1-12 at a private international school in Thailand and am excited to be starting my second year at CDES!
BA in Piano Performance from Sichuan Conservatory of Music
MA in Education Leadership from Dallas Baptist University
This is my fifth year in CDES. Teaching with children fills me with joy. By teaching children about orff music, such as the use of singing, dancing, acting, and percussion, they can get involved physically and mentally, which will be helpful for their growth.

I have been teaching for 11 years. I have experience teaching many different subjects and age levels both in the US and Asia; however, 7 out of my 11 years I taught art.
