Miss Elena Imel

Hello! I am one of the music teachers here at Chief Joseph, as well as at Heritage Middle School. Here I teach 4th and 5th grade orchestra. 

I am originally from Seattle, Washington and came to Idaho to go to Boise State University. I graduated this last May with my degree in music education. However, I have been teaching private lessons for about 5 years now. I am so excited to be here this year, and cannot wait for orchestra to begin! Please feel free to reach out to me if you ever have any questions about orchestra, or music.
