Mrs. Megan Whitty
Welcome to band!! I am very excited to begin my 15th year of teaching and my seventh year here at Jackson Middle School! I am a native of Tennessee and received my bachelor’s degree in Music Education from Tennessee Technological University in 2004 and my master’s degree in Instrumental Conducting from the University of Florida in 2010. My main instruments are the oboe and piano. I have been teaching band for 15 years in Iowa, Tennessee, Florida and Texas. My husband Ross and I love living in San Antonio with our boxers (Daisy and Finnegan) and our three cats (Snickers, Max and Taco).
I believe your child has unlimited potential! It is my goal to help your child reach that potential through high expectations and by developing your child's sense of self through love, compassion and care. I am looking forward to showing your child the world of music and making them a member of the wonderful Jackson Jaguar family!
Please visit the Jackson band Facebook page and our *NEW* Jackson band Instagram page for any updated information about online learning and other pertinent information.
I am available to you if you have any questions or concerns. Please do not hestitate to contact me at any time if you need any assistance. I am more than happy to help!
