Hello Wildkats! I am so excited to be back teaching music at Meador this year and with the new name, Mrs. Weeks! A few things about me- I graduated from The University of Houston with a degree in music education and performed with the Santa Clara Vanguard Drum and Bugle Corps in 2007 and 2009. I have performed and have experience in many different ensembles including choir, opera, percussion ensemble, orchestra, wind ensemble, marching band, and musical theater. I play percussion at Woodlands Church on the weekends and play piano at home for enjoyment. I love music and love children, so I have the best of both worlds here at Meador. I am very excited for this year and I know we will have a great time in music. Go Wildkats!
