I am so excited to teach instrumental music at Oberon this year! Band and orchestra are my PASSION! I started playing clarinet and violin when I was a 6th grader, and those choices launched the rest of my life. I think music ensembles are so important and special, especially at the middle school level. They are a place of belonging, teamwork, acceptance, JOY, and pride as we work together towards a common goal. This is my 12th year teaching, and I have taught in Minnesota, Africa, and Colorado Springs. I have my bachelor's and master's degrees in music education, and nothing brings me more joy than teaching music to students of all ages. I am looking forward to a wonderful year making music at Oberon!

 Mr. Peter Waalkes
Mechanics of Engineering

I've been teaching STEM since before STEM was a thing. After having taught Science and coached the Science Olympiad teams (at another school, in a different district, in a galaxy far, far away...) I came to Oberon. After a year teaching 8th grade Science I was given the opportunity to create my own hands-on science class in the room that used to be the wood/metal shop. That was 17 years ago and the class just keeps getting better every year. We learn critical thinking skills, physics, and engineering while designing, building, and testing cars, planes, rockets, trebuchets and catapults, kites, wind turbines, solar balloons, computers, and towers, as well as lots of fun learning activities.
