Welcome to music and art! I absolutely love my job and often tell people it's like a day at camp every day in my classroom! I hope to instill the love of singing, dancing, and creating into all my students. I believe we are born to do these things. (After all, look at how many small children sing songs and/or color!)
First and Third Quarters are MUSIC
Second and Fourth Quarters are ART
If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to ask. Email is the easiest way to reach me.  
With respect,
Mrs. Ishler 
(By the way, for those of you who have known me for the past 15 years of my teaching career, do you notice the name change? I got married over the summer, July 2016, to Mr. Matt Ishler -Rochester High School principal- so Ms. Akin became Mrs. Ishler. But, have no fear, Ms. Akin still loves Bacon!) 
Mark your calendar! Our next concert is the District Arts Festival at Rochester High School on Saturday, April 29, 2017 at 6:00pm for the FIRST and SECOND graders only. Concert attire is white shirts and black bottoms. The concert will last approx. 1 hour. Please be prepared to stay the entire time. 
*Songs can be found on YouTube to sing along to. They are:
FIGHT SONG by Rachel Platten
I WAS HERE by Lady Antebellum

A BIG THANK YOU to all my students and families; past and present. I was voted SWW Family Magazine's "Favorite Music Instructor!" My heart is full and I am very happy! It is an honor to get to do a job I love doing each and every day! SING ON!
