Eisenhower Middle School Choir / Mr. Rob Saldaña
Welcome to Choir at Ike! I am elated to be a part of the Eisenhower Fine Arts Department and lead the esteemed Ike Choral Program. This school year will be my third at Ike; I was previously the Assistant Choir Director at Harris Middle School. I firmly believe that everybody has the power to express themselves through singing; I developed terrible speech habits during my younger years and it wasn't until I joined choir when singing helped me overcome them! My mission is to help each and every one of my students find their self-confidence and better themselves through this medium.
I earned my Bachelor's of Music in Vocal Music Education from The University of Texas at San Antonio (Go 'Runners!) where I was also active in the opera and theater programs, in addition to my main emphasis, which is choral.
In my "spare" time, I cook a lot of food, watch cooking shows (Chopped!), attempt to travel (made it to Colorado for the first time over the summer), read all the YA literature, listen to all the news podcasts, watch plenty of musicals and operas (have you listened to the new Carousel Broadway cast recording? One of the leads is an opera singer!) and spend time with my doggo, Bubba.
I look forward to an exciting year at Ike and having the privilege of working with some talented young musicians!
