Hello! My name is Jenny Huettl and I am the band director at Gateway Pointe Elementary, Higley Traditional Academy, and Chaparral Elementary. I am thrilled to begin my fourth year in the Higley School District and am looking forward to a musical year!
About Miss Huettl:
I am an Arizona native, born and raised in Gilbert, AZ. I received my Bachelor's degree in Music Education from Arizona State University, where I studied in the Clarinet Studio as well as actively participated as head Drum Major for the Sun Devil Marching Band. As Drum Major, I not only conducted the band, but I had the opportunity to participate in a pregame performance at Superbowl XLIX and travel across the west coast for other incredible performance opportunities!
As you may have already noticed in the photo of me and Sparky, I am a true Sun Devil fan for life!!!
A few fun facts about me:
I love my family, puppies, coffee,
Marvel/DC movies & TV shows,
and my favorite color is blue.
In the fifth grade, I chose to learn how to play the clarinet and throughout the years picked up other instruments to play in the various ensembles I participated in. In high school, I was heavily involved with marching band as the head drum major, as well as wind ensemble, jazz band, winter drumline, and symphony orchestra. I also had the opportunity to participate in various All-State and Regional band festivals, where I was able to create music across the state of Arizona with other quality high school musicians. It wasn't until my senior year in high school when I decided to pursue a degree in Music Education because of my love for music, and to this date I still think it is the best decision I have ever made! As you can see, my music teachers challenged and inspired me to become actively involved in music all throughout my schooling and they are the reason why I decided to become a teacher.
In music, every student can learn and it is my goal to inspire my students, just as I was once inspired by my own teachers, to find their own appreciation for creating and sharing music.
I am very excited to begin working with all of the students at each of my schools and look forward to creating some beautiful music together.
