Hello Prairie Hills Community,
My name is Amanda Vigil and I am excited to join you for the 2021-2022 school year. I am a Colorado native who graduated from Thornton High School. I have my Bacholors in Music Edication from the Colorado State University as well as my Masters in Music Education from the University of Colorado. I am entering in my 14th year in education. I have taught nine years in private schools around the Denver area pre-school through 8th grade general music. I taught three years at Thornton Middle School 6-8th grade orchestra and music appreciation (Guitar and Ukulele class). Last year was my first year here at PHE. This summer I completed my 2nd level of Orff Schulwerk music method training and a member of the American Orff Schulwerk Association. Click here to learn more about the Orff Schulwerk method.
In my spare time I perform with the Denver Pops Orchestra on my cello, training to run the Colfax Half Marathon in October and the Dopey Challenge in January, spend time with my family, and craft. I look forward to getting to meet all of you and to be able to create beautiful music.
