Mrs. Janice Braun

This year I am using my own website which allows me to share information with parents and students and also allows audio tracks for rehearsing. This is valuable for Choir, small performance groups, Grade 3 Recorder belts as well as various music classroom activities throughout the year.  It also has a page for contacting me.   I invite you to take a look!

My website is: http://musicbraun.weebly.com

I have been married for 34 years to another teacher who also teaches in the Chilliwack School District!  We have three grown children.  I grew up in Chilliwack on a dairy farm and attended Trinity Western College and the University of Victoria after graduating from CSSS.  I began my teaching career in Prince George teaching High School Music for 6 years and then took several years off to stay at home with our three children.  

I began teaching part-time at F.G. Leary in 1993 and have remained ever since, eventually increasing to full-time as our children grew older. The past 23 years at this school have been full of exciting opportunities and rewarding, as well as sometimes challenging, experiences. 

My favorite part of my job is working with the children at Leary!

An ongoing personal goal is to become more technologically literate and incorporate technology, where appropriate, into the Music classes and program.  My weebly website is one result of this focus. It is my hope that the website will help with communication and facilitate students' learning.  Again, I invite you to take a look by clicking on the link above.
