Ms. Herrle

I am excited to join the Windham High School faculty as the Band and Orchestra teacher. Prior to Windham, I was the Band and Chorus teacher at a small school in Vermont for four years. I graduated from Ithaca College in 2014 and am currently pursuing my Masters in Music Education through Boston University.
