Megan Heithaus, Orchestra Teacher
Q. What made you want to work in education?
“I’ve always enjoyed working with people and teaching them different things. I taught Sunday school when I was younger in high school and taught private lessons since I was you, and my grandma was a teacher. I love music and I love sharing my knowledge.”
Q. How many years have you been working in education?
“This is my ninth year teaching in a classroom setting, but I have been teaching private lessons since I was 16.”
Q. What made you decide to work at GCAA?
“I really [like] that it [is] art centered, it’s like I’m with my people all the time, and it’s very supportive, and it seems very collaborative, and I’m enjoying it so far.”
Q. What’s one of your favorite hobbies?
“If music still counts, I perform with the Paducah Symphony [in Kentucky], so that’s one of the things I like to do on the side. If it’s not music related, I enjoy being outdoors and cooking.”
Q. What are you most looking forward to this year?’
“[I am looking forward to] getting my students to feel confident in performing as a group again, because it’s been so long, and they’re in kind of different places, getting us to kinda focus as a group and perform together.”
