Veit, Michele

Welcome to the Tippin Orchestra Program

Mrs. Veit  Hello, mname is Mrs. Veit and I would like take this opportunity to tell you a little bit about myself. I have been teaching in the El Paso Independent School District for twenty-three years and for the last five years I have been teaching at Kohlberg and Tippin Elementary Schools. I am a native of El Paso and I received my Bachelor of Music Education from the University of El Paso at Texas. My primary instrument is the piano and my favorite and secondary instrument is the harp. Before teaching in the school district I taught private piano lessons in my home for many years. I have always enjoyed teaching children music and watching the joy that appears on their faces with they come to understand a new concept or when they learn their first song. I look forward to a year of new experiences and take great pride in having the opportunity to teach your children. Welcome to the world of orchestra!

Dear Parents and Students,

I wanted to let you know that I will not be present at the beginning of the 2016-17 school year. I am on FMLA leave until September 15th because I am recovering from a difficult hip revision that I had on June 8th. It was very unexpected that the recovery would take this long. I know the school will find an acceptable replacement during my absence so orchestra will go on as usual. I look forward to seeing what all the students have accomplished when I return.

Best Wishes,

Mrs. Veit
