In 2003 I changed my assignment and began teaching fifth and sixth grade orchestra classes at eight Spokane Public Schools on Spokane’s South Hill. Currently I teach fifth and sixth grade orchestra classes at Hutton, Jefferson, Lincoln Heights, Moran Prairie, Mullan Road, Roosevelt, Sheridan and Wilson Elementary Schools. I play the double bass in the bass sections of the Gonzaga University Orchestra and the Coeur d’Alene Symphony Orchestra. I’ve been teaching the Elementary Methods: Music class in the School of Education at Gonzaga University since the fall of 2005.
