My name is Christina Jaramillo-Soper and I am beginning my fourth year as the director of bands at Stapley Junior High School and Hale Elementary School and second year at Lehi Elementary School. This will be my sixth year in music education and my 20th year of band. My previous teaching experience includes Longfellow Elementary School in Mesa where I taught band and general music from 2007-2009.
I graduated Magna Cum Laude in 2007 from Arizona State University with my bachelor's degree in Instrumental Music Education. While at ASU I studied flute with Elizabeth Buck. Before attending ASU, I attended Scottsdale Community College where I studied flute with Christina Steffen. While at SCC I was the winner of the Bychinsky Artist of Promise Award in 2004 and took many awards in the Maricopa Community College District Music Competition from 2002-2005.
As a performer, I currently perform with the Arizona Wind Symphony under the direction of Bill Richardson. I also play with the Desert Echoes Flute Project who has been a featured performing group at the National Flute Association Convention in 2008/2010/2012. I have also been involved with the Arizona Flute Society having served on their board as secretary from 2006-2008 and conducting a flute choir at the 2009 summer flute camp. I toured with the Arizona Ambassadors of Music in the summer of 2001.
