Mrs. LeeAnne Becker - Music
Hello everyone and welcome to a new school year! My name is LeeAnne Becker. I have been the elementary music teacher here at HTJ for the past 18 years. This school year is going to be great! It is going to be a year filled with music, movement, creativity, singing, dancing and imagination. My goal is to nurture our student's natural love of music. I will provide all SOARing Eaglets the opportunity to develop basic music skills, to explore many genres of music, to experience vocal and instrumental performances, and to create their own music. I encourage all SOARing Eaglet families to visit the music room. I hope everyone has a fantastic school year filled with growth, and the curiosity for learning.
