Mrs. Jennifer Perelstein
I am honored to be starting my fifth year as the Nimitz Choir Director. I have a degree in Music Education from the University of Texas at San Antonio. I was particularly honored to be voted Teacher of the Year for our district, and was informed that I am the 2024 Teacher of the Year for Region 20 in Texas. Prior to Nimitz, I was an Art Teacher at The San Antonio Country Day Montessori School. While there, I published "Who Moved The Masterpieces," a book highlighting works from the general collection of the McNay Museum in San Antonio. I also served as a board member for a community theatre in New Braunfels for 7 years where I occasionally perform in productions. As you can see, I believe in all the arts as a form of self-expression.
Additionally, I have a degree in Communications and Journalism from Texas State University in San Marcos. I spent 9 years in television; recruiting, hiring and coaching news, sports and weather broadcasters across the United States.
However, my favorite position has been being the mother of our son, Dakota, who is a middle school band director (and an Eagle Scout!) and wife to David, who oversees testing data for a school district. Our entire family is comitted to educating the next generation.
I love playing with Olive (my terrier), baking bread, science fiction books and movies, making fairy gardens, playing the piano, and any music by Claude Debussy or Charlie Puth.
