Meet the Teacher
Hello Gisler Families!
It is my privilege and joy to return to Fountain Valley School District as an elementary music teacher at Cox and to begin a new year at Gisler Elementary School. It is my mission to create a safe, positive, and fun learning environment for students to experience the joy and life-changing power of music education.
I am passionate about music education. I knew I wanted to be a music teacher since my senior year of high school singing in my school's choir. I am a proud graduate of Biola University where I earned my Bachelors of Music Degree in Music Education: Voice and Choir Emphasis, a Minor in Biblical and Theological Studies, and my Single Subject Teaching Credential in Music (TK-12th grades). In college I sang with the Biola Chorale, Opera, and sang and conducted the Biola Men's Chorus. I have experience teaching TK-12 Music in the Garden Grove Unified School District, Anaheim Union School District, and Huntington Beach Union High School Districts. My current research interests include trauma-informed teaching practices, ADHD learning and teaching strategies, differentiated instruction for EL learners, child and adult vocal pedagogy, and developmentally appropriate teaching practices in the elementary music classroom.
