IGNITE LEARNING THROUGH THE ARTS
I am an Arts Integration Specialist, Educational Consultant, and Music Educator. After 23 years of teaching in public schools, I founded MATCH Studio and Consulting where I teach private piano lessons in my music studio and offer educational consulting with a focus on Arts Integration and STEAM.
I believe that combining the creative nature of the arts with academics gives students another access point to acquire knowledge that is meaningful, relevant, and culturally responsive. I am equally passionate about showing teachers how to change routine education through artistic thinking and expression.
