Vocal Music Holly Varner

Hello, and welcome! My name is Holly Varner, and I am the K-5 general music teacher at Crocker¬†Elementary. I graduated from Iowa State University in 2012 with degrees in elementary education and music. I received additional endorsements in English, reading K-8, and reading 5-12. While at Iowa State, I performed with the Iowa State wind ensemble, orchestra, flute studio, and as a member of various small ensembles. I ended my time at Iowa State “Italian style” student teaching in Rome, Italy. I recently completed the M.A.T program through Morningside College. Prior to my time in Ankeny, I taught general music with the PCM schools.

Teaching music is my passion. I feel so blessed to be able to share my love of music with students every day. Watching them grow, learn, and develop their own musical identity is truly rewarding.
