About Mrs. Walsdorf

Jennifer Walsdorf, Assistant Band Director, SBMS Bands

This is my 14th year at Spring Branch MS and my 27th year teaching overall (all in TX and all at the middle school level).  I am a native of Naperville, IL and a graduate of the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign with a Bachelor of Science in Music Education.  This summer, I earned a Masters of Education in School Counseling at the University of St. Thomas (Houston). My husband, Jeff, also teaches at SBMS.  Together, we are the proud parents of Meghann (15) who is a sophomore at Cypress Lakes HS (CFISD) and David (11) who is a 5th grader at Wilson Elementary (CFISD).

Outside of teaching, I am a member of the Lone Star Symphonic Band, one of the Houston area's premiere community bands,  in the West Houston area.  We perform several concerts throughout the year.  Check out our concert season at www.lssband.org    I am also a big Fighting Illini, Chicago Cubs and Chicago Bears fan!!!
