Message from Idaho Orff-Schulwerk Association President SHANNON HOTCHKISS
I am so excited to serve the IOSA as the new president. I would like to take this opportunity to give a huge thank you to Teresa Colebrook-Finch for serving as our president for the past two years, as well as her many other years of service on the board in various positions. Teresa has an unbridled passion for music education. In the past our teaching paths have crossed in the same district for a handful of years. In that time I saw Teresa’s commitment to her students, curriculum and colleagues. She is quick to share, offer, train and encourage. She is energetic, creative and talented. IOSA is better for having her at the helm for the past two years. I will rely greatly on her experience and expertise as I attempt to fill a portion of the shoes she has left for me to wear, and look forward to working with her to further the mission of the IOSA.
Respectfully, Shannon Hotchkiss Incoming IOSA President
