Ms. Rheanna Tate
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).
