Greetings! I am excited to begin my first year at Upper Merion Area Middle School teaching 5th Grade Band and STEM in Music. Music has been my passion since I started playing trumpet at nine years old, and I look forward to facilitating students' music appreciation at Upper Merion. My goal is that all students, both musicians and non-musicians, understand the value that music has in our lives.
Like many students at Upper Merion, I come from a culturally and linguistically diverse background. I am a former English Language Learner and the son of two Vietnamese immigrants. I also speak Spanish fluently and some Vietnamese.
Please do not hesitate to contact me with any questions or concerns at firstname.lastname@example.org.
