Libby rehearsing with his group on the field outside of cherry creek high school.What is your proudest moment as an educator?
My proudest moments come when I see former students achieving high levels of success in their chosen careers. I feel an even greater sense of pride when they attribute their success to the lessons they learned through participation in the band program!

How do you hope to make a difference in your student's lives?
I hope to make a difference through encouraging every student to pursue their passions and to value excellence in every aspect of their lives. I also make every effort to know as much about the lives of each individual student. I have found that personal connections build trust within the program leading to a positive community environment.

What's the most important lesson that you try to teach your students?
Even though some of the most important lessons are related to teamwork, time management, musicianship, and professionalism, the most important thing I want my students to gain through our band program is a lifelong appreciation of the arts regardless of their chosen career paths. My hope is that they will support the arts throughout their lives in every possible way.
