My name is Patricia Sieckman and I graduated from ASU with a Bachelors in Music 1982. I have been teaching general music in Arizona since 2005. I have been at Chaparral since it opened in 2007. Prior to that I worked as a music therapist, biofeedback therapist, taught private music lessons, performed, taught kindermusik, and for a long period was a stay at home mom. I have been married since 1983 and have two adult children.
In addition to being certified in music education I am also certified to teach K-8 and currently finishing my endorsement in gifted education. Continuing education helps me to continuously sharpen the saw and improve my tool set in order to better serve our 950(+) students. I apply a whole child approach to the music classroom working to use various activities to reach children with all different types of learning styles.
In my spare time I enjoy being with my family, cooking, reading, listening to/playing music, and enjoying the great state of Arizona
