Hello, my name is Mrs. Pereira and I am this year’s choir teacher. I am very excited to be at YMHS, and determined to carry the tradition of excellence in its choral program. This is my sixteenth-year teaching in the Yonkers District, and I cannot wait to see my former students, as well as all the new faces.
I began my career in a professional choral group, travelling and performing for a variety of audiences across Japan. This group experience has had a tremendous impact toward my style of teaching, which focuses on improving through collaboration.
My specialties include Choral Music, Opera, Musical, Madrigal, Jazz Vocal, World Music and... having fun! So, expect me to bring energy and passion to every class!
I raised three children and I am proud to see them now as affectionate and responsible adults. I will trust and treat all my students as responsible young adults and look forward to seeing them flourish just like my own children.
The YMHS building is huge, and I got quite lost on my first few days, but every corner I turned there was always someone to give me a hand. I feel very lucky to work in this caring and loving environment.
We will have a great year together in harmony!
