Mary Jo Papich

Mary Jo Papich has dedicated decades to creating programs to assist music teachers! As co-founder of the Jazz Education Network (JEN) and as a former band director and arts director administrator, Mary Jo wanted to provide meaningful engagement, educational resources and connections that would be available for those dedicated to teaching music students of all ages. When she was just ten years old, she wrote in a school assignment that she wanted to be a music teacher. I wonder if that little girl had any idea the impact she would have on countless students and educators alike.
