    Each student at Cumming Elementary has the opportunity to attend two physical education, one art, and one music class every week.  They also receive instruction from the school Counselors, keyboarding in the Media Center, and T.E.A.M Extreme. The 150-200 minutes of instructional time our students receive within the curricula of these unique classes not only gives them foundational knowledge of these content areas, but also an expansive and enriched outlook on life itself.

Aside from teaching music, I share my talents in my church. I also enjoy reading, cooking, and playing disc golf.

We will work on fitness, team building, cooperation, and social skills. I believe these components are essential in helping to positively educate our students.
