Favorite teacher? My favorite teacher was my high school band director, Jack Hahn. He inspired me to be a music teacher. When I was in college, I did my student teaching with him and my elementary music teacher, Marilyn Darrick. Mr. Hahn
became my mentor. He inspired me to always give back to my community and even encouraged me to open my music store, Music of the Bay.
