“I became involved with Gray Stone Day School in the fall of 2011 when our son, David, started as a freshman. His immediate love for the school was infectious. I soon found myself regularly helping out with Lance projects, as well as attending many athletic events. Our family came to know both teachers and parents who truly cared about the education of their students. I am privileged to be starting my second year of teaching Choral Music at Gray Stone, and will strive to pass on both the joy and inspiration inherent in music.”
