Elementary music can be a lonely job. Music specialists are typically the only ones in the building that teach music.

I am here to help other elementary music teachers feel confident and excited to teach their students. Between lesson plans, teaching inspiration, and practical tips to improve your elementary music classroom, you will feel ready to take on the classroom!I can't wait to chat!
