Hello, my name is Lauren White. This will be my 3rd year of teaching Band and Drama at THRS and I couldn’t be more excited with each year! I grew up in the Missouri City/Sugar Land area and attended school in Fort Bend. I attended Southwest Texas (now Texas State) for Music and Business Administration and attended Master classes at the University of Phoenix. I was a former accountant before I decided to teach my passion. This will be my 10th year teaching and I couldn’t ask for a better profession.
Band begins in 5th grade, but we start to prepare them in music with the recorders in the 3rd grade. Clarinet is my main instrument, but I have been trained in most of the band instruments with my education. We will have Winter and Spring Band concerts as well as performing during some of the assemblies. I like to choose music that will inspire the students to have fun while playing their instruments.
Drama is fun way to explore different aspects of life. We start the drama classes in 2nd grade and continue through 5th grade with 6th – 8th as an elective class. This year I am proud to announce the line-up for our Drama program.
