Degrees and Certifications:
Mrs. Jennifer Fruend
I am very excited to join Ballentine Elementary as your child's music teacher this year. This year will begin my 18th year as an elementary music teacher. I received my B.S. in Music Education from Missouri State University. I play the flute, and in college I had many great musical experiences. Our marching band performed at the Macy's Thanksgiving Parade in New York, and we also marched at the Tournament of Roses Parade in Pasadena, California. It is really important to me to give my students opportunities to learn and explore in fun ways so they will grow to love music as much as I do.
My family lives in Fuquay-Varina, and I am very excited to teach in my community! My husband Andrew and I have one daughter named Amelia, who will be in second grade at Ballentine Elementary. We have two very loved dogs named Disney and Onyx. I enjoy spending time with my family, and I love to sew. My husband and I enjoy watching football together- Go Panthers! I look forward to having a great year in music with your students!!!
