"MSU has truly prepared me for my career. The faculty of the School of Music are among the top in their profession. Their skills of performing and teaching have provide a high level of preparation for my career. They have each touched me in a very special way. They dedicate so much to their students and have genuine interest in each of the students success. Through motivation and example, the staff of the School of Music have made me the band director that I am today. MSU has truly blessed me with a wonderful education so that I can be success in my career."
I am currently in my second year of teaching in the Knott County School Systems. I teach middle school band at Carr Creek Elementary, Emmalena Elementary, Beaver Creek Elementary, Hindman Elementary and Jones Fork Elementary. I also teach Choir, Concert Band, Marching Band, and Pep Band at Knott County Central High School.
