Current Position:

 

This is my first year at Crowder. I teach music grades 1-6th, MS/HS choir, HS Orchestra, HS Music Theory and HS Humanities. I, also, direct the HS Show Band after school. 

Previous Position:

My first teaching position was in 2000. I taugh music K-8 in a Catholic School where I lived. I taugh music in MIssouri for 15 year in all grade levels. My last two years in MIssouri I was the accompanist and assistance choir director for a 5A school accompanying 3 MS choirs, 4 HS choirs and all solos and ensembles for contest. I directed one of the Women’s HS choir and they received a Superior rating at Contest. 

I moved to Oklahoma in 2014 and started teaching in McAlester. I was the assistance choir director for 2 years. When the main director left, I became the head director. In addition to MS and HS, I taught 5th grade music as well. I, also, directed all the musical productions

I have taught voice and piano lessons privately. 

Family Information:

I met my husband, Jay Henson, in 2013. We got married in June of 2014 and I moved to Oklahoma. I have 3 kids (James:32, Emily:28 and Kate: 27) and my husband has 3 kids (Micah:36, Shirley:34 and Betsey:31). We call ourselves the Brady Bunch.  We are blessed to have 8 wonderful grandkids: 4 in MO, 2 in CT and 2 in CO. They are all 4 years and younger. 

We have 2 dogs at home. A Great Dane named Mickey and a Bassett/Beagle named Waverly. Both are rescue dogs. 

Personal Information:

I make it a point to focus on family when I am home. We have a pond right next to our house so my husband and I spend a lot of time fishing in the spring, summer and fall. 

I love my streaming options on the TV. I, am, also a crime junkie. I spend my travel time to school either listening to podcasts or audio books. 

I love a good roadtrip or to travel in general especially to see my grandbabies.
