    Education
    I received my bachelors degree from Temple University in Philadelphia, PA in 1996.  From 1996-1997 I taught high school band at Bensalem High School in Bensalem, PA as an instructional assistant as well as assistant marching band director for Abington High School in Abington, PA.  In 1997 I moved to the DFW area to attend graduate school at UNT.  I started teaching at Dove Elementary as a "temporary" job before getting another high school job.  As you can see, I never left Dove.  I am in my 20th year!
