Message from Miss Watts

Hello! This is my second year teaching music at St. George School. I am very excited to be returning for another great year! I can be reached by email at jwatts@saint-george-parish.org. I look forward to hearing from you and working with you to further the musical education of your children! I grew up in Macon, MO, where my love of music flourished when I joined fifth grade band and began to play trombone. Throughout middle school and high school, God blessed me with many opportunities to develop the musical talent He gave me, and those opportunities led me to study music in college. I graduated with a Bachelor of Arts in Music from Truman State University in 2011. After graduation, I spent two wonderful years with the Salesian Sisters of St. John Bosco where I was immersed in the educational philosophy of St. John Bosco, the Preventive System, which emphasizes “reason, religion, and loving kindness” and a well-rounded education that includes music and the arts. After returning to Missouri in 2013, I studied choral education for two years a the University of Missouri - Columbia. At St. George School, the music classroom is an environment where students are a “family of musicians” and support one another in discovering and developing the musical talents God has given each of them. Students will explore the many ways in which music enriches daily life, will expand their musical abilities, and will strive to live Psalm 146:2, “I will praise the Lord all my life, sing praise to my God while I live.” St. Cecilia, patron saint of musicians, pray for us! !
