"Lori is one of the best. She is passionate about her students and her colleagues, enthusiastic, energetic, organized, and creative. Lori’s professionalism, both in and out of the classroom, is a model for all teachers, not just new teachers. Her ideas about building a music program, with any demographic, make me pause and think about what I am doing in order to become better with my own students. Lori is very detailed and has thought through, and continues to think about, every aspect of teaching in a music classroom."
