I have always had something musical in my life.
After graduating from K-State I was blessed to have been able to teach in a Christian school in Manhattan, KS, until stepping down to just be “mom” to my two boys. During this time I also played piano and led worship at my church, while my husband, a Christian artist and studio engineer/producer traveled and sang around the Midwest or worked on numerous independent projects in our home-based studio.
God moved us back “home” to the Kansas City area in 2007, where we found Maranatha Christian Academy for our boys. In 2011, God opened a door for me to return to my teaching roots.
I am extremely passionate about the students at MCA receiving a true music education that both helps each student find his/her place musically speaking, and prepares those with musical gifts for excellence in this very competitive and musically rich area. As I always tell my students, music is one of the few things we will “take with us” when we move to Heaven some day. Even if not every student has a specific calling in this area, we are all called to “sing to him a new song, play skillfully, and shout for joy.” Ps 33:3 I believe I am called to instill in each one of my students’ lives the pursuit of God through music.
Psalms 33:3 “sing to him a new song, play skillfully, and shout for joy.”
