Hello Encino Park Eagles!
For those of you that don't know me I'm Mr. Valdes, Encino Park's best, most talented, music teacher. This is my 5th year teaching music at this school! I graduated from Trinity University in 2015 with a Bachelor of Music and again in 2016 with a Master of Arts in Teaching. I then taught at Tuscany Heights as a long-term music sub before starting at Encino Park in the Fall of 2016.
I love teaching music and, of course, love playing and listening to it as well. I am a singer, who can also play guitar, ukulele, piano, bass, cello, percussion, and (my personal favorite) the recorder. I'm also a huge pokemon fan. I play and collect the trading cards. And I love to work out and get strong!
I am so excited to be teaching music again this year. I wish we could be together making music in our classroom, but don't worry we can still learn and have fun making music virtually! We will meet through zoom during your specials time, where we will experience and learn all about music. Then after we meet, you will log in to Seesaw to complete the activity for that day.
If you have any questions don't hesitate to ask! I can't wait to see you all! Let's have a great '20-'21 year.
Stay safe. Stay healthy. See ya'll soon.
