Homeschool Program Leadership
I have been organizing and leading homeschool programs since 2010. It has been a wonderful and challenging journey in entrepreneurship, leadership, community, and relationships. Tiffany and I founded A TEAM in 2013 and I’m so proud to call this my community!
The valuable education I have received in leadership and business didn’t come from a formal institution with degrees and titles but from books, seminars, and business training. These include WWG, many books and talks by John Maxwell, EntreLeadership (book and program) by Dave Ramsey, and countless others.
Music has been part of my life since age 7, when my mom bought a piano with grocery money and started teaching me. I followed that with violin starting in 4th grade, and played in orchestras, jazz bands, and small groups, and started teaching piano lessons at 15. I got the singing bug while in youth choir at church, started singing in choirs in high school, and decided (after an interesting year of “pre-med” at UCDavis) to pursue my passion to teach choral music. I quickly transferred to San Jose State University, where I sang with the Concert Choir and Choraliers, completed my BA in Music and earned my CA teaching credential. I had a 2 1/2 year public school teaching career at Hayward Unified School District, teaching elementary, middle school, and high school choral music until having my baby, Jordan, and deciding to stay home. I have continued through the years to teach piano (and love it!) and have in the last few years started teaching vocal and ensemble music for homeschoolers. I have homeschooled all my children’s lives, and am thankful for the people they are becoming.
