I taught elementary school (reading, writing, arithmetic) for 35+ years and retired 2 years ago. It has been my privilege and joy to be the piano accompanist in various capacities for over 8 years. As the needs and circumstances demanded over that time, I have played for the entire service, just the choir, and/or special music. Currently I accompany the hymns, some incidental music, the choir during rehearsals and Sunday services, and the entire service when our esteemed music director, Ann Hossler, takes some much-deserved time off. Being a musician at heart, I love to play the piano at UCH in whatever ways I am needed.
