Brief Bio:

  • My interests and hobbies tend to make their way into the classroom throughout the course of the year. One of my passions is Environmental Science, which complements beautifully the Monarch Butterfly unit and various other studies.  I also have a passion for travel, which comes to the children by way of beautiful books, songs, and stories from those countries I have had the privilege to visit. My latest adventure is raising two awesome sons. My husband, George, and I love them every day with great joy!

Brief Bio:

Tr. Tina is excited to join the teaching staff at HFS. For the past 15 years, she has owned and operated her own private piano and has overseen the education of several of her students from the time they were toddlers through their high school graduations.  She also taught for 7 years as a faculty member at Moorestown School of Music - a non-profit music school that specialized in the Suzuki method. During this time, she specialized in early learning music classes, with students starting lessons as young as 4 years old.  She also received training in Music Together and conducted classes for families with children between the ages of 1 week to 4 years old, in mixed-age classroom settings.  She believes that teachers play a profound role in developing the whole child and helping to raise them to become good and happy people that have positive contributions to society. 

 

In her free time, she loves going to coffee shops and watching movies with her husband and two children.
