Hello! My name is Jill Bjorklund, and I began teaching at Parkview in 2015. I co-teach 6th Grade Choir with David Sponder and teach 7th Grade Treble Clef Choirs at Parkview.
I am a 2003 graduate of Carlisle High School, a 2007 graduate of the University of Northern Iowa, and 2018 graduate of Drake University. I taught 6 years (3 years of K-6 General Music and 3 years of 7-12 Vocal Music) in the Wapsie Valley Community School District and 2 years (6-12 Vocal Music) in the Collins-Maxwell Community School District before coming to my dream job here in Ankeny.
My husband, Mark, also teaches Vocal Music at Collins-Maxwell Community School District. We have two sons- Benjamin (1st grade) and Beau (4 years old). In my free time, I enjoy performing in and conducting ensembles at our church in town, exercising, bike rides to parks, playing cards, going to movies, and spending as much time with family as I can!
I know we're going to have a fantastic year!
