Hi! My name is Jessica Lopez and I am the Music Specialist at John Glenn. This is my second year teaching and feel very excited to be continuing here at this great school. I graduated from UTSA May 2009 with a Bachelors' degree in Music Studies with a concentration in Vocal Music.

These 5th grade students will also have the opportunity to participate in the Paint to Music contest organized by the San Antonio Symphony in the Spring.
