Mrs. Jennifer Perelstein

I am honored to be starting my third year as the Nimitz Choir Director.  I have a degree in Music Education from the University of Texas at San Antonio.  Prior to Nimitz, I was an Art Teacher at the 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 also occasionally perform in productions.  As you can see, I believe in all the arts as a form of self expression.

I also 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, an Eagle Scout and currently a music student at Texas Tech University in Lubbock, and wife to David, who oversees testing data for a school district.

I love playing with my one-eyed dog, baking bread, science fiction books and movies, making fairy gardens, playing the piano, and any music by Claude Debussy or Charlie Puth.
