• Dear Parents,

    Welcome back to a new school year! This will be my second  year as the string teacher at Maureen M. Welch Elementary, and I look forward to working with you and your children in the coming year. I have been a string teacher in Council Rock since 2000, and this year, I will be dividing my teaching time between Newtown Elementary and Maureen M. Welch Elementary. 

    A little bit about me: I have violin performance degrees from Carnegie Mellon University and Ithaca College, and a teaching certificate from Temple University. Prior to teaching in Council Rock, I was a private violin instructor at a number of schools including Ithaca Talent Education, Corning Suzuki Strings, and the Academy of Children’s Music in Fort Washington, PA, where I also served as the performance director. I also spent seven summers performing and teaching as a member of the string faculty of the New England Music Camp in Oakland, Maine. Currently, I perform with the Bryn Athyn Orchestra and the Warminster Symphony Orchestra. 

    My twin daughters, Isabella (Bella) and Francesca (Chessie) are 11th grade students at Lower Moreland High School. 

    As a family, we enjoy nature through hiking, biking, puzzles,  and bird-watching.  I also love to read and to cook!!

    I look forward to a great year at Maureen M. Welch Elementary.  Should you have any questions or concerns during the year, please feel free to contact me at mbovasso@crsd.org.

    Wishing everyone a wonderful school year!

    Michele Bovasso
