Teacher: Choir, Band, and Drama
Phone: (719) 683 – 2247 ext. 122
I am thrilled to be the performing arts teacher at Hanover JSHS. It is a dream come true to return to my roots as a music teacher in a rural school. I am a Colorado Springs native, born in Peyton, CO, where my family had a small cattle ranch. My father was one of the original Flying W Wranglers in the 1950’s playing guitar and singing for the band. A love of music, horses, and the wide open countryside run deep in my veins and I am proud to be a part of the continuing legacy of Hanover Music and Drama Department.
My formal education includes earning a BM at the University of Arizona, a Master of Music from the University of Cincinnati, and a Bachelor of Music Education from CSU Pueblo. Go Thunderwolves!
I am currently an active substitute bassist for the Colorado Springs Philharmonic, The Chamber Orchestra of the Springs, and freelance for numerous occasions. I also belong to a surf band playing electric bass, play old-time fiddle music in a duet with my husband on guitar and manage my own string quartet which specializes in performing for weddings and special ceremonies. You may say I have a true Musical Life.
I look forward to meeting everyone during the school year for our student performances.
Dear Parents, Staff, and Teachers,This is not the way I hoped to make first contact with many of you. Unfortunately, the district has experienced an unfortunate failure that has interrupted the water supply to the Admin and JSHS facilities.Because of this, I, with input from the board, have decided to push school opening at least one week, as we assess the issue and devise a remedy. For now, new staff will report on August 9th, all staff will be at District training on August 10th, Building training will take place on August 11th, and classes will begin on August 12th.Please feel free to contact your school or District administrator if you have any questions. As always I am available to talk at any time. We appreciate your patience during this delay.Thank you and we’re looking forward to an excellent new school year for The Hornet Nation.Best,Kyle CooperSuperintendentHanover School District
