Hello, and Welcome to Instrumental Music!

My name is Mrs. Earles and I am in my third year as the instrumental music teacher here at Edison High School. We are doing some AMAZING musical things here at Edison! My background before coming to Edison: I worked  3 years in Minneapolis Public Schools as a highly recommended Substitute Teacher. Before that, I graduated with my degree in K-12 Instrumental and Classroom Music from the University of Northwestern-St. Paul. I am extremely excited to be here at Edison and help students to achieve their musical goals.  Go Tommies!

Homework & Tutoring Support Times

I coach Rock Band on Wednesdays from 3:15-5:00 after school. There are some days that I work with students after school to help them catch up on their work. Most of the time if students need to make up work, I tell them these things:

1) Come see me before school (need to know in advance)

2) Stay after school (double check with me to see if I am available)

3) During lunch (must eat lunch in cafeteria and get a pass from me beforehand)

4) Advisory on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays (make sure to get a pass from me)
