I am currently in my 30th year of public school teaching and am the director of instrumental music at St. Marys Area High School. I received a Bachelor of Music Degree from Grove City College, 1986. I am responsible for concert band, music appreciation, music theory classes, and life-skills music class. Also, I coordinate the South St. Marys Street Elementary beginner band program. After school, I am responsible for the SMAHS Marching Band, school/community musicals and indoor percussion ensemble. Outside of school, I coordinate and conduct the Nicholas J. Sinibaldi Community Concert Band which presents a community holiday concert each year.
Prior to my employment at St. Marys Area High School in 1998, I was a music teacher in the Brockway Area School District for twelve years. I am a member of PMEA, Pennsylvania Music Educators Association, where I have served as President of District 2, Northwestern Pennsylvania Region.
