Congratulations to DeAnne Helquist who was nominated by our staff as Teacher of the Year!  “Deanne is fantastic! She is known throughout the state as one of the best orchestra teachers. She taught orchestra for over 41 years and positively influenced thousands of students. Deanne creates something magical in her classroom. Students are happily engaged in learning, playing, and harmonizing beautiful music in orchestra. She provides clear expectations, excellent pacing, positive reminders, cueing, proximity, and tasking. Deanne’s love for teaching and music brings learning alive for her students.”
