5th Grade Band

Meet the Teacher

Hello!  My name is Amy Meenk.  

I am excited to join the incredible team of instrumental music teachers in the Minneapolis Public Schools!  This is my 23rd year teaching music to young students and my 6th year teaching in the Minneapolis Public Schools.  The past 5 years I taught general music at Northrop Community School.  Before that, I was Director of Bands for 17 years at both public and private schools in grades 4th-8th grades.  
This year, I will be teaching 5th grade Band at three schools; Bancroft, Northrop and Windom.  Teaching a child how to learn independently, solve problems, be creative, and feel excited about learning are my most important job descriptions.  I look forward to meeting all the new 5th graders and getting instruments in their hands.  

When I am not teaching, I am a mom to two beautiful girls who also attend MPS schools.  My daughters will be in the 2nd and 6th grades this year at Hale and Justice Page Middle School.  I love being outdoors, enjoying some ice cream, and taking walks with my Boston Terrier named Winston.
