Mr. Nick Rueckert
Hello! My name is Nick Rueckert and I am excited to be teaching instrumental music in the Ankeny Community School District! I direct the 8th grade concert bands, assist with the Centennial Marching Band, and teach 6th-12th grade high brass lessons at Prairie Ridge, Northview, and Centennial High School.
I received my undergraduate degree in Music Education with an additional Jazz Concentration from Drake University in 2011. I am also in the midst of completing my Masters in Music Education from Boston University.
I began teaching at Northview Middle School in 2017. Prior to Northview, I taught in Urbandale and Clarinda High Schools. Outside of school hours I enjoy spending time with my wife and son and performing as a pianist and french hornist.
Because I travel between three buildings, the best way to reach me is by email: firstname.lastname@example.org
