Music Teacher – PK - 8
I am one of five children who learned from my faithful parents to share with others
the gifts the Lord has given me. At a very young age I learned to pray in song,
so I have always been part of choirs in Catholic Schools and different churches
as a soloist and as part of vocal ensembles.
I am a classical trained singer/performer with much respect and love for Sacred Music.
I have been a Cantor in church for more than 20 years and started teaching voice in 2003 in New York City.
Currently I serve as Cantor at St. Benedict's and St. Mary's Church in Stamford.
I came to teach Music at St. Cecilia’s Elementary School in 2014, where I encouraged children
to join the School Choir and sing at our school Masses throughout the school year.
In 2016, I also taught music at Our Lady Star of the Sea Elementary School.
I feel very blessed to have the opportunity to teach what I love to do at the Catholic Academy of Stamford,
and to have the chance to give back my experience as a singer, musician and performer
to all students in Music class, as a Choir Director and School Play Director.
