After high school, Rhode Island College was the only school I applied to because I wanted to be a teacher, and RIC had a reputation as 'THE' teacher school. I found the reputation was well deserved and received my B.S. in Music Education in January 1996.
My experiences as an undergrad led me straight back to Rhode Island College for my Master's Degree, which I completed in January 2005. I took several courses taught by faculty that I had known as an undergrad but enjoyed studying with some new faces during my time as a graduate candidate. Dr. Bill Jones served as my advisor, and I have to say he made working on my thesis quite enjoyable. I have nothing but respect and admiration for both the faculty and my colleagues at RIC.
