Ms. Kelley Smith

Hi, I am one of the Music Teachers at Chief Joseph.  I teach music for grades Kindergarten, First, Second, Third and Fourth Grade Music.  I also teach Fourth and Fifth Grade Band

I am a native Idahoan, born and raised, and was educated in the Boise School District.  I graduated with a Music Education Degree from Boise State University, and a Masters of Performance from the University of Oregon.  I have taught in the West Ada School District for 35 years. 

Not only do I educate students in music, I am also involved with music in the community.  I play in the Boise Philharmonic, Treasure Valley Concert Band, and The Verde Percussion Group.  I'm also involved in Boise Music Week.  I am part of the Production Committee, and I direct the orchestra for the musicals presented during Music Week.
I love working with your students, and please feel free to contact me at any time. 
"I teach music because I want to be able to pass on my love of music and learning.  I never want students to be bullied like I was when I went to school.  I want to be able to show each and everyone of my students how important they are."
