Jarrod O'Donnell

Hometown: Clinton, Iowa
Major: Music Education
Place of Employment: Atlantic Community School District in Atlantic, Iowa
Title: 9-12 Instrumental Music Teacher

"I had a great experience during my time at BVU. The music staff was excellent in preparing me for life in the classroom. Professor Bertrand makes sure that his students know not only everything there is to know about teaching band, but also about all of the ‘behind the scenes’ things that teachers do that has nothing to do with teaching music."
