    Hello students, parents, community members, and fellow teachers!

    I am excited to be back at Saint Paul Music Academy again this year as the G/T teacher. I feel privileged to work with so many bright Future Leaders. Our students learned and accomplished many wonderful things last year under the guidance of gifted services.  Both the students and I really look forward to this year's classes and projects as well!

    Please take a look around our Gifted Services pages here on the new SPMA website. We are learning more about how to use technology and web software and want to share our new skills with you, so stay tuned!
