Hi, my name is
Mrs. Jessie Scott,
and I am going to be the new music teacher at Monroe Christian School! I am so so excited for this opportunity and to be joining what seems to be a wonderful community of families! Music has a way of healing, inspiring, uplifting, and uniting us; I am so excited to help bring more music into the lives of this community. I grew up in Lake Wenatchee just outside of Leavenworth (yes...the Bavarian Village...and yes it was a fun yet peculiar place to grow up). My parents were the directors of Tall Timber Ranch, a Presbyterian church camp, so I grew up in a rich and dynamic Christian environment. I also grew up in a very musical family, however my own musical journey started when I was seven and started violin lessons. My grandpa was an amateur violin maker and he told his grandchildren that he would give us an instrument to play if we started to learn and I took him seriously. I fell in love with the instrument and have been playing ever since. I graduated from Whitworth University in 2009 with a degree in music and an emphasis on music education. Since graduating from college, I have spent the past decade teaching music in a variety of different environments and performing in a number of local symphonies and bands. I am currently teaching Kindermusik with Joyous Noise Studios (based out of Redmond), and teaching violin with Kaleidoscope Academy in Snohomish. I live in Sultan with my husband and two daughters (Teresa -3.5 and Daphne - 16 months).
I am looking forward to meeting you all in one way or another in the near future!
