Who is this Ms. Shorey?

I’m a teacher, a music composer, a reader, and a lover of silly and fun!  I’ve spent the last 2 decades teaching little ones to make joyful music.

At home, I’m the mom to 2 adult boys (I still like to call them “The boys”  (Don’t tell them!) who are musicians in their own right.  I’m also dog mom to Mickey, a feisty Toy Yorky who thinks he’s a doberman, and Grandma to a black lab and a sweet kitty!

I’m passionate about physical exercise.  I legit wake up before 5 a.m. to work out before school.  I’m an avid reader and water skiier, and a hopeful gardener looking to acquire a green thumb.

Here are the Official deets!
