Hi there! My name is Margaret Smith and this is my second year here as the music teacher at Betty Wheeler CJA. I am a graduate of Lawrence University Conservatory of Music in Appleton, Wisconsin, where I received certifications to teach general, choral, and instrumental music, as well as theatre arts. I spent the 2020-2021 school year student teaching in the Appleton Area School District in all of these areas and in virtual, hybrid, and in-person models. I spent last year here in St. Louis getting to know our amazing SLPS scholars. I am a proud south city resident and feel very blessed to be teaching in this community! I look forward to continuing to make musical discoveries with the students, learning about music of different cultures and time periods, and having LOTS of fun this year :) ...and hopefully more in-person events!!!
