• Hello to the Coeur d'Alene community!  My name is Ann Simmons.  This year I will be teaching music at Bryan and Borah Elementary Schools.  For over twenty years I taught elementary music in Gooding, Idaho.  I treasure those years and anxiously look forward to a rewarding experience here in Coeur d'Alene.   Teaching music for me is a mission and a passion.   Because I love teaching music, I have a determination to inspire all my students to find their love of music through hands-on experiences.  In the music classroom we will improve our musical skills, experiencing and creating music through singing, playing instruments, movement, and more!
