|Position:||General Music Teacher|
Hello! Welcome to my San Marcos webpage. My name is Ms. Jennifer Hebert and I teach Music here at San Marcos. I love to read, go hiking, spend time with the people I love, and of course listen to/play music. I have been teaching here at San Marcos since 2020, and it's going to be a great year!
My Education and Professional Background
I graduated with my bachelors degree in Music Education from Northern Arizona University in December of 2019. My primary instrument is my voice, and I specialize in choral and vocal singing. I also play percussion, and I can pluck out a few chords on the piano and the guitar. I have worked with the Chandler Children's Chorus as a co-director for Hartford ELEMENTARY after-school choir club, as well as taught in K-12 choir summer camps. Along with teaching, I am a paid church singer, and I have had some experience directing adult church choirs.
My Educational Philosophy
I believe that music is essential to a child's growth both as a student and as a person. Studies have shown that music can aide in both academic and social-emotional growth, provide an outlet of artistic expression, and assist in teaching essential life-skills that benefit the student through all phases of their life. Students learn best when they feel safe and loved, and when they are having fun. I believe hard work and a positive attitude are the foundations to success, and every child can succeed!
