Degrees and Certifications:

Mrs. Susan Montrief


Hello!  I have the privilege of teaching music here at Ferry Farm Elementary! What greater career could there be than teaching music to children:)?  Our program includes general music, Super Singers, Instrumental Ensemble, Recorder Karate, special performances and more!  

I have a Bachelor of Music degree from Simpson College in Indianola, Iowa with a major in voice and minor in piano.  I continued in graduate level elementary music education at George Mason University, where I earned a certification in the Orff teaching method.


I have been teaching music for 31 years-wow!  My positions have included elementary general music and middle school choral music.  I am married to my husband, Mark, and have two chilldren-Katelyn and Luke.  When I am not teaching music, I spend most of my time with my family.  My faith is of utmost importance to me and my favorite past time is watching baseball-GO Nats!
