CCS Welcomes New 5-12 Band Teacher
Cascade Christian Schools would like to welcome our new Band teacher, Don Neptun. Mr. Neptun will be teaching 5th through12th band grade at all campuses. Mr. Neptun and his wife, Lori, have a two-year-old daughter named Penelope. He was born in Peoria, Illinois, but was raised all over the USA and Caribbean, as he is the son of a now-retired Coast Guard officer. He has actually been to every state in this country!
Mr. Neptun attended Pacific Lutheran University and graduated in 2005. He has earned his Bachelor of Music Education and K-12 Instrumental and General Music Certification.
Mr. Neptun always loved learning about music and loved his experiences in school as a musician. He wanted to be able to share and create that same type of experience for others.
Here is what he has to say about how he view’s his role in the CCS mission:
“I believe in the value of excellence. Learning how to be an excellent musician requires a significant amount of time, hard work, and dedication. Even naturally gifted people need to put in the time and do the work to be excellent. Fortunately, learning how to be excellent is a transferable skill. If you can be an excellent musician, you can be excellent in other areas of life. I seek to help students be excellent at whatever they are doing.”
Welcome to the CCS family, Mr. Neptun!
