A Little Information about the Instrumental Music Teachers!

  Hello, my name is Jonathan Boehmer.   I am one of the instrumental music teachers for Glade, New Midway, Walkersville, and Whittier Elementary Schools.  This year I will be going into my seventh year of teaching.  I am a graduate of West Virginia University, where I received my Bachelor's Degree in Music Education.  After college I accepted a job teaching elementary general music in Anne Arundel County.  I spent two years there, but decided that I wanted to teach music where I grew up.  In 2007, I was the part-time teacher at Ballenger Creek and North Frederick Elementary Schools.

    I am thrilled to be teaching instrumental music this year.  I look forward to watching your students grow musically as the year progresses.  As a teacher, my expectations for student achievement are always high.  I will always make sure the environment in my classroom is one that allows students to achieve at a high level.  When students walk into my classroom I do my best to help the students feel safe, and able to explore the world of music that is around them.

    I am excited to share my knowledge of music will all four schools of which I will be teaching.  I look forward to not only educating students, but also learning from those around me too.

If at anytime in the year you need to contact me please feel free to e-mail or call.  I promise to be as prompt as possible in replying to any emails or phone calls I receive.
