Attea Band Alumni!
Attea Graduation Year: 2007
What instrument did you play at Attea? Clarinet and Bass Clarinet
Did you play at GBS? Yes, clarinet, bass clarinet and oboe. I was a section leader senior year.
I remember in 8th grade when we went to the state competition how excited and nervous we were. The best part of the competition was going to eat at Old Country Buffet afterwards!
Where do you go to college? Butler University
What do you do?
I am a senior elementary education major with a licensure in early childhood, along with minors in English as a Second Language, Early Childhood, Reading, and Mild Intervention. I am currently finishing up my first semester of student teaching in a preschool classroom. I'm involved in Greek Life and I am currently finishing up my second year on our executive council.
What are your plans for the future?
To hopefully find a job, either in Indianapolis or aboard and eventually return to school to receive my masters and doctorate.
