For the next few weeks, you might see a new face around…….Or hear some piano being played before school! Meet Laura Brockbank! She’s a Nebo District BTS Arts Integration Specialist in Music (whew, what a long title!) This means that for the next 6 weeks, she will be working with classroom teachers on using MUSIC to teach other subjects (like math, spelling, writing, science, etc.) She is very excited to be at our school!
If you want to know more…….Laura went to Payson High School, UVSC, and BYU. She has taught 4th grade, Elementary Music and Art, and worked with Spanish Fork Youth Theater for 20 years. She also plays lots of fun instruments! Bagpipes, guitar, piano, clarinet, Irish penny whistle, drum, concertina, ukulele, and anything else she can get her hands on! She has also worked as a character actress and musician at Evermore Park in Pleasant Grove (and sometimes still does!) Laura has 5 kids, a great husband, and her last name really is BROCKBANK!
Here is a video of Laura taking song requests from kids before school. Ask your kids if she’s visited their classroom yet! VIDEO https://photos.app.goo.gl/UkfFjjQwerTGxiFKA
