The Rockford Symphony Orchestra announced Amy Jensen of Hononegah High School is the 2020 Outstanding Music Educator of the Year.
The RSO sent out a press release, announcing Jensen as the winner, and awarded her virtually.
As the winner, she received money for school supplies, personal development, and a plaque to recognize her achievement.
Jensen has been teaching in Rockford since 1990, and says the best part about being a music educator is, “Making connections. Music is the inspiring all-encompassing force in the classroom that builds relationships, creates meaningful experiences, opens the human soul to expression and emotions and most of all has the ability to join us together.”
