I graduated from Washington High School in 2006. In 2010 I received my Bachelor of Arts in Music Performance from Indiana State University. I immediately started a family after graduation and became a stay-at-home mom for three years. I'm married to my best friend, Bryce Hamm. We have two children, Kelci and Kamden, with a third one due in January.
In 2014 I started working at Vincennes University in Student Financial Services, and in 2018 I started my unexpected career as a band director here at Loogootee Schools. I have never seen a community such as this! I can't express how lucky I am to be here in this community. I am now in my third year of teaching, and I look forward to many more. Since I started teaching I have been working towards obtaining my Master's degree. This December I will have completed all requirements towards earning a Master of Arts in Teaching from Oakland City University.
I have an open-door policy. I look forward to hearing from both students and parents in order to continue the outstanding band program that was built here through the years. In order to have a successful student and program, communication is necessary on the part of teacher, student, and parent. If you ever have any questions or concerns, please don't hesitate to contact me.
