Jefferson Elementary Staff:
Mrs. Ashley (Principal)- Piano and Clarinet
I took piano and clarinet lessons when I was younger, and I also participated in Chorus and Choir when I was in school. For music to listen to, I enjoy Rock, Classical, and Show Tunes. My favorite band is the rock band U2 and my favorite song is a song by U2 called "Beautiful Day."
Ms. Klim (Assistant Principal)- Clarinet
In the past, I've participated in 7th and 8th grade chorus and I also played the clarinet in the 5th and 6th grade band. I did hip-hop and jazz dance in high school. I love all kinds of music, so it's hard to give a favorite song/artist. This is a fun fact about me that not many people know, I do love to sing but don't like singing in front of an audience.
Ms. Muller (2nd Grade Teacher)
Mr. Chelman (3rd Grade Teacher)- Piano
I always danced growing up. My family is very musical and I grew up appreciating all types of music. My grandfather was a professional musician in the Buffalo Symphony! He played the violin & trumpet. I learned to play the violin in 4th-6th grade, but was much better at using my voice as an instrument. I was in chorus from then until my senior year of high school and played Maria in our high school's production of “The Sound of Music!” I still use song and dance as a way to engage my first graders every day!
Mrs. Winterroth (1st Grade Teacher)- Piano
When I was a little girl, I took private music lessons for about 5 years until my mother got tired of fighting with me to practice. Most of my lessons were on how to read music. Now I wish I had taken more lessons and practiced more. I have taken some lessons as an adult. As an adult, I learn about using chords in music and I have played with that. I play for my own pleasure. I enjoy most music.
Mrs. Doherty (Fourth Grade Teacher)- Guitar, Clarinet
I took lessons in piano, drums, guitar and clarinet when I was a kid. Mrs. Schoen was my teacher! I used to play the clarinet, but I am out of practice! I still play the guitar! I was in band from 4th to 8th grade! My favorite musical artist is Bruce Springsteen! My favorite kind of music to listen to is soundtracks of musicals! I love to participate in Family Sing-Alongs! I love music!
I danced for 18 years (tap, jazz, ballet) and got to travel to compete in places like a cruise ship, Magic Kingdom, and New York.
I played the flute in band in middle school and high school.
My favorite genre is country music and I like Carrie Underwood.
-Ms. Leary (5th Grade Teacher)
I grew up playing the piano (all the way until high school).

Mrs. Siciliano (3rd Grade Teacher)- High School Chorus
I enjoy listening to Pop and Classical music, and I like to participate in Family Sing-Alongs! When I was in high school, I used to compete with my High School Chorus!
I have no photographic evidence but I was in a church choir and musicals all through school. My most memorable singing role was as the back half of a horse in a musical rendition of St George and the Dragon!
Eve Berne, MS, CCC-SLP
Davis Thayer Elementary School
I played the viola from 4th grade to 9th grade (I only quit in high school because I had to choose between art and music!). I also was a tap dancer from preschool to high school!
My favorite type of music right now is Country Music, and I love Keith Urban!
Even though I don't play any instrument now or sing, I did do the following in high school:
I played the flute in the marching band and concert band. I also sang in chorus, and even was part of the musical Carousel!
Here is my info:
* Favorite singer of all time is Bob Seger, with best song being Turn the Page.
* I played the clarinet in middle school, but not successfully.
* My one and only stage appearance was playing Ado Annie in Oklahoma, which was probably the best character of all time to be able to play.
* I am a sucker for musical movies and know every single word to every song in Grease, Mamma Mia, Pitch Perfect and Joyful Noise.
