Mrs. Bentley

My name is Ida Bentley.  I am thrilled to be the new band director at Las Brisas, and Desert Sage Elementary Schools.  This is my 21st year of teaching. Though I am originally from Fresno, California, I have lived in Arizona since 1986.  I have a Master’s Degree in Educational Leadership from Northern Arizona University and a Bachelor of Music Degree from Arizona State University.  Four year's ago I received Level 1 Orff Certification from Arizona State University.  I have taught general music, choir, and band.  I also have taught a beginning choir at my local church and private piano, clarinet and trombone lessons.  I love spending time with my family.  My hobbies are: music, hiking, biking, swimming, boating, arts/crafts, reading, and spending time up north at our cabin.
