It was nice seeing so many familiar faces at Open House! If you didn't get a chance to see my Open House Presentation, here is a link to it:
BAND AND CHOIR PAPER WORK DUE MONDAY, SEPT. 11TH
Homework Due Monday, September 11th. Changed to give the weekend to look over the Syllabus and Handbook. Return the Syllabus Signature Page or Google Form. I will print on request, but am trying to save paper, so I will only print requested copies. Students who are borrowing district instruments also need to turn in the School District Instrument Contract or Google Form as well.
I wanted to be a teacher from a young age. My mom made me take piano lessons when I was in fourth grade. Little did I know that would lead to being a music teacher! I performed in Elementary Choir. A friend of my dad's gave me an old flute to play in Sixth Grade Band. I took violin lessons for a little while in junior high and played around with the guitar some growing up. I started playing oboe in eighth grade band after my mom found an amazing deal at a yard sale. In high school, I told my band director that I wanted to be a music teacher, so she made sure that I learned how to play other instruments as well. I continued playing oboe, flute, and piano, and added clarinet, tenor saxophone, and trombone. I played in Concert Band, Pep Band, Marching Band, and Jazz Band. I joined High School Choir when I could fit it in my schedule again. I conducted my high school band every year at the Young Conductors' Concert. I also helped conduct Junior High Band and accompany Junior High Choir during my Senior year.
I studied Music, English, and Elementary Education at the University of Idaho in Moscow. I played Oboe in the Wind Ensemble and Orchestra and Flute in the Marching Band. I have taught in the Lakeland School District for 9 years. During that time, I have taught at JBE, TLE, BKE, GWE, and LJHS. I taught elementary music for 8 years, sixth grade band for 4 years, Junior High Choir for 2 years, and Junior High Bands for 1 year.
I’ve had many family members, friends, and teachers who have inspired me to be a lifelong musician and strive to inspire my students to become lifelong musicians. Some of my students may become professional musicians, but most will not. I hope my students enjoy listening to, singing, playing, and creating music for themselves and those they choose share it with. Most importantly, I hope my student have fun with music!
I look forward to seeing you at the back to school night, parent teacher conferences, concerts, and events throughout the school year. Please contact me any time.
