Welcome back to school! I am one of the music teachers at the junior high and the orchestra director for the district. It is a pleasure to work with the students and community of Summit Hill School District 161. Please contact me with any questions or concerns and I will be happy to help. I look forward to teaching your student this year!


Re-assessment Policy: Students who receive a D or F on a written summative may re-take it in class. I will work with them to make sure they understand their errors and also expect students to practice/study the content as needed.
