John Meere


    ​Educational background:

    I have earned a BA in Psychology, a BA in Music-Piano, and a Master’s (plus) Degree in Music Education with Teaching Licensure.


    ​I began my Music teaching career at University Hill Elementary (Bilingual) in Boulder in 1999. While teaching there I also directed Choir at Casey Middle School.  After 4 years, I switched over to High School where  I taught Choir, Guitar, Piano, and Music History classes at Ranum HS in Denver for 2 years. I have been at Lafayette Elementary as Music teacher and Choir director since 2005.

    What do you like about your job?

    I love watching kids get excited about new learning and I really love to see their pride when they do a great job. I also really love to teach kids new dances- especially the boys. I love being “Dad” to my 3 kids, and it helps remind me to treat each and every child as if they were my own.​​

    Hobbies and personal interests:

    Singing and playing guitar and piano is still one of my favorite hobbies. I really enjoy sports and exercise. I also love to read, cook, and garden.
