Naomi L. Fernandez

As an instructional supervisor, Naomi Fernandez looks to cheer on her heroes, music teachers. She brings to ETM 14 years of music teaching experience and a passion for music education. After receiving her Bachelor’s degree in K-12 Music Education from Union College in Lincoln, Nebraska, she went on to finish her Masters of Music Education at Boston University. Before coming to ETM she has worked at schools in Nebraska (grades 6-8), California (grades 1-12), and Oregon (grades 1-12) teaching a wide range of general music and ensembles, including Band, Bells, Choir, Show Choir, Steel Drums, Music Appreciation, and group Piano lessons. Naomi sees music as a core subject for every student. “I believe that all students are important and can learn music,” she says. “I believe that music should be fun and productive and that it can’t just be one or the other. I believe in the value of humor to educate and manage. And, I believe music is a core class of infinite value.”
