Ms. Rheanna Tate

Welcome to elementary music! I'm Ms. Tate, and I couldn't be more excited to be returning to Singing Hills Elementary this year. 
 

I began teaching in 2003 and have spent the majority of my career teaching middle and high school band and orchestra. My biggest passion growing up was marching band. Anyone who says it's not a sport is wrong! But even better than playing in a marching band was leading my own marching band. My High School marching band won most improved twice and repeatedly placed at the top of the local league. My oldest son (James, 13) was almost born at Disneyland while I was there leading that same band down Main Street.

During my career, I won Student Teacher of the Year from the Colorado Bandmasters Association (2003), Teacher of the Year-Valley High School (2007) and, nominated for a Douglas County Apple Award (2018).

 
Changing to elementary music a few short years ago was a big shift but it surprised me by being the perfect fit. I was lucky enough to be the elementary music teacher, band director, and choir director for both of my kids when I switched over. My younger son, Will, is now 11 and just started middle school this year -- yikes! Both my boys are talented musicians. I have a singer and a percussionist. One of my biggest joys is seeing the kids I taught as youngsters progress in their musical journey and keep playing their instruments into middle and high school.  
 
When I'm not teaching, you can find me hanging with my boys in Parker and loving on the world's best pets: George (dog), Mike and Melvin (cats). 

 

  • I am so excited to start a school year with all of you. I had a blast teaching at Singing Hills for a semester last year. Time to come back for more!
