My name is Gena James, and I have been teaching for 18 years. I am very excited to start my first year of teaching here at Union Township Elementary, teaching K-4 general music. Throughout my career my experience has been teaching K-8th grade general music, 4th-12th grade instrumental music, 2nd-8th grade choir, and directing mini-musicals for 3rd and 4th grades.
I currently live the Phillipsburg area with my husband, daughter, son, and our pet dog. During my free time I love to bake and create beautiful cakes and cupcakes However, I like to challenge myself in creating many different kinds of desserts. I also enjoy attending many musical events exploring and experiencing many different genres of music and music of other cultures.
In music, students will be engaged in movement and hands-on activities to broaden and expand their music experience. I love to have students experience music in a fun and meaningful way. Make sure you check the school concert dates under the Performance Tab, and mark them on your calendars.
