Hello and Welcome to Mr. Church's Site!
I am currently in my 14th year as the band director at Highland West Junior High. In addition to my duties here, I am also an Associate Director of Bands at Southmoore High School. I worked as an associate director with the Moore High School Band in 2006 and 2007. I completed my student teaching in the Jenks Public School District in fall of 2005.
I received my Bachelors Degree of Instrumental Music Education from East Central University, graduating with High Academic Achievement. I served as drum major for the Pride of Tigerland Marching band for three years, and was a member of the ECU Wind Ensemble, Jazz Ensemble, and Percussion Ensemble. I served as drum major for the Ada High School Marching Band for two years as well. Additionally, I recieved my National Board Certification for music in 2011 and was named Moore Public Schools District Teacher of the Year in 2013, and an Oklahoma Rising Star Teacher later the same year.
Feel free to contact me with any questions concerning band at Highland West Junior High.
