Meet The New Junior High Music Teacher
Hello! My name is Mrs. Doremus and I am your new band/chorus teacher!
I graduated from Bradley University in Peoria, Il with a Bachelor's degree in Music Education. At Bradley, I was involved in the percussion ensemble and the Symphonic Winds concert band. I also performed with the Peoria Pops Orchestra, Knox-Galesburg Symphony, Pekin Municipal Band, Gus Gustafson Band, Cornstock Kids Theater, Grace Methodist Chruch and the Illinois Central College Philharmonic Chorale.
During college I had the pleasure of working as a camp counselor at Interlochen Arts Camp in northern Michigan for two summers. This world renowned camp was a place that inspired me to pursue music when I was a camper in middle school.
I am currently completing my Master of Music Education degree at Illinois State University in Normal, Il.
I have spent the past three years teaching general music, chorus and piano at Midwest Central in Manito, Il. In my spare time I enjoy working with area marching bands (Pekin, Princeville, Washington, Bartonville), binge-watching tv shows on Netflix, and spending time with my husband and family.
I can't wait to meet you and start creating musical memories!
