"I started playing keyboard as part of the pit orchestra at the Tuacahn Center for the Arts musicals years ago, and when the opportunity came to me to become a member of the faculty at the high school, I could not resist. I absolutely love the students, class sizes, the latitude I have to build my own program, and the strong sense of unity I feel from the administration team and students alike."
