About Me

Educational History:

I graduated from Hazelwood West High School and went on to earn my Bachelor’s degree in Music Education at Southeast Missouri State University.  After teaching Suzuki violin lessons for a year and a half I continued my education at Southern Illinois University Carbondale and there earned my Master’s degree in Music Education.

Current Position:

This year will be my fifth year teaching Orchestra in Sikeston.  This year I will be teaching not only Junior High and High School Orchestra, but also Music Appreciation offered as dual credit through Southeast Missouri State University.

Previous Position:

Before teaching in Sikeston I taught private violin and viola lessons using mostly the Suzuki method.  I lead Suzuki group classes at the Southeast Music Academy along with teaching group classes through schools in the Carbondale area.

Family Information:

I am married to Mr. Heithaus. I have no human children, but I do have 4 fur babies.  I have two cats named Minerva and Ginny, one dog named Mozart, and a sugar glider named Charlie.

Personal Information:

When not teaching I enjoy playing my violin and viola.  I perform with both the Paducah and SEMO Symphonies.  I also love to read, cook, sew, and enjoy the outdoors.
