I attend conferences in the winter to learn the current research in my field, fun and new techniques to teaching music skills, and new technology the enhances the capabilities of the children.
I started working in the Sikeston Public School district in 1997 as a title assistant. I returned to Sikeston in 2007 and began teaching music at Southeast Elementary. I am currently the primary music educator at Lee Hunter, and a part time music educator at Matthews Elementary. I have also taught at Morehouse Elementary, Southeast Elementary, 5th and 6th Grade Center and Kindergarten Center.
Prior to working at Sikeston I also worked at East Prairie Public School for 6 years. I taught elementary grades K-6 at Martin Elementary and Doyle Elementary.
I am happily married to Daniel Headd, and I have 2 girls Victoria Headd and Kelsie Headd. I have 2 dogs and 1 cat.
When I am not teaching (singing) at school, I direct children’s plays at the Sikeston Little Theater. During the summer, I love to work in my yard, plant flowers, and pull weeds while listening to music.
