Teacher, First Year Teacher, and Staff Member of the Year
2013-14 Teacher of the Year
Megan Jensen, music teacher, was chosen by our teachers to represent them as our Teacher of the Year. She was honored by the Aiken County School District in May.
Mrs. Jensen has been at East Aiken School of the Arts since 2009. In addition to teaching general music, she also is the advisor for No Boundaries, East Aiken School of the Arts' all boys choir and directs the chorus for 3rd through 5th grade students. The chorus presents two musicals a year in collaboration with the dance club. As a member of our arts steering committee, she has been instrumental in the development of our after-school strings scholarship program which allows all of our students the opportunity to receive quality strings instruction. Her tireless efforts and devotion to the strings program have had a positive and lasting impact on the lives of many children! The difference Mrs. Jensen is making is evident by the smiles on her students' faces as they gain self-confidence and a sense of belonging.
