How long have you been teaching in your specialized area? -"I have been teaching since 1980 which means 39 years of teaching."
What do you enjoy most about teaching in your specialized area? -"I enjoy teaching the students music because it is something that all will hear and listen to each day of their lives. Music is always is with us no matter where we are or what we are doing. All should be able to understand musical concepts to enhance their listening abilities and really enjoy what they are hearing. Being an active participant also enhances our ability to enjoy music. Singing and playing instruments are basic ways to enjoy music. Composing takes more knowledge, so we try to incorporate that information in general music classes."

What Our Families Are Saying
"Each day, as we drive home, we discuss good things that happened while at school. It's fun to hear the stories of kindness, compassion and love that come from them while on our ride home. Some days it's helping a friend clean up a spill, some days it's being the morning message helper, some days it's about adding a loved one to the prayer board. Good things are happening at HFSM!" - HFSM Parents Jeremy and Megan Schmitt
