Annalise Elenz » Welcome!


Hello, everybody!  This is my 4th year at North Middle, and I am so excited to start making music with you.  Prior to working at NMS, I taught K-4 General Music at Eaton for 2 years.  Before Eaton, I taught 5th-12th Grade Band and K/1 General Music for 8 years in Minnesota.  I attended the University of North Dakota for my undergraduate degrees, receiving Bachelors of Music in both Music Education and Music Therapy.  I earned my Master's of Education degree from the College of St. Scholastica.  My husband and I relocated to the area several years ago and have been enjoying all that East Tennessee has to offer, especially the Great Smoky Mountains!  In my spare time, I like to play instruments (especially trumpet--it's my main instrument, so it is secretly my favorite..), read, play with my adorable doodles, go boating, play board games, and hike (especially to waterfalls!).
