• Hello!


    My name is Samantha Ivins and I am the new Music Teacher at Valley View Elementary. I originally grew up in the Chicago Suburbs, and studied at the Hartt School of music, under John Feierabend, creator of First Steps in Music and Conversational Solfege. This is my 4th Year teaching music, and third year teaching elementary general music. I look forward to singing, moving, and playing instruments with your children. Over the year I will post updates about performances and classroom activities in the upcoming school year.
