I am thrilled to be a member of the faculty at Dougherty Family College (DFC) of the University of St. Thomas (UST) in Minneapolis, MN. At DFC, I teach "Understanding Music and Culture," a music course that encourages students to see themselves as artists and scholars, using Culturally Sustaining Pedagogy (CSP).
As a vocalist, I love to share my passion for engaging, thought-provoking music. In 2020, I am performing with Journey North Opera Company, Opera Tease, and Opera on Tap , singing everything from modern opera to Disney.
I am also a second-year student in the Educational Leadership and Learning doctoral program at the University of St. Thomas in St. Paul, MN. For my dissertation, I am studying instructional design and implementing CSP music education curriculum.
