Degrees and Certifications:

Mrs. Karen Eglen

Fifth grade music should be called Turning Point Music because this is the year that students assimilate knowledge from K-4 music and prepare for the experiences that await in sixth grade Band, Choir, and Orchestra!  Every unit we complete will build on music knowledge, theory, and experiences.  I cannot wait until we can grow together in music.  I will have the opportunity to teach all fifth grade students from both East and West.  

I studied music education at Indiana State University, and I graduated with certification to teach K-12 music - instrumental, choral, and general.  I've taught all ages from K-12, and most everything from jazz band to marching band to concert choir to music theory to beginning music.  Before coming to the Intermediate Schools, I had the privelage of teaching music to the students at Pine Tree Elementary.  My husband and I have three kids that are here in Avon Schools.  We love it here!
