Terri R. Wubbena is celebrating having taught 40 years at JBU this year. She has been in administration for the past 20+. She is the advisor for the music education and general music programs. While certified to teach all-levels of music in the states of Texas and Arkansas, Mrs. Wubbena has done additional study in Orff, Kodaly, and Dalcroze music education methodologies. She is also the choir director for the Grace Children’s Choir School at Grace Episcopal Church.
At JBU, Mrs. Wubbena is the sponsor of the Music Service Organization/CMEN and the director of the Chamber Orchestra. She enjoys taking students to two music conferences most years and continues to be passionate about music. Her work at JBU has never become routine – if and when it does, she will retire!
Even though she has lived in Arkansas these many years, Mrs. W is still a Texan at heart! Ask her about her family and her pets, and she will tell you!
