Jennifer Endecott (2017) Teaching has been an important part of my life for 12+ years. I am a Nat’l Board Certified Elementary School Teacher with a reading endorsement and have my Masters in Education Administration from Western Washington University. Incorporating the arts in to my classroom has always been a passion. I took a leave of absence from the classroom to be a stay-at-home mom and discovered Music with Mar. “I was looking for an opportunity to expose my children to music knowing it would help their growth into confident learners and increase their language development. I was immediately impressed with the link between music and literacy and knew we were hooked. Two years later, I found out we were moving and became excited to bring Music with Mar. classes with us as we embarked on our new adventure to Lemoore, CA.
