Welcome to music at Hubbell! I am excited to be joining the Hubbell Hawk community! Prior to teaching at Hubbell, I was vocal director at Roosevelt High School since 2011. I graduated from Carnegie Mellon University with a B.F.A. in Vocal Performance and Music Education Certification K-12. I look forward to providing excellent opportunities for every student to succeed in music and look forward to all the choir concerts this year. I also teach private voice lessons. I love music and theatre, going to see shows, performing, and spending time with my husband, friends, and family.


I look forward to nurturing your student's musical skills and talents!

Hola! My name is Jennifer Rodriguez and I am the Spanish teacher at Hubbell for all students grades K-5. I graduated with my teaching degree from Grandview College in Des Moines with an endorsement in K-6 foreign language in 2006. I then moved to Mexico and started my teaching career by teaching English as a foreign language. I taught at two different bilingual private schools where the first language of all students was Spanish. When I returned to the United States, I taught Spanish as a long-term sub at Hoover High School for one semester. Then I got my position at Hubbell for the 2008-2009 school year and have been enjoying my position here at Hubbell ever since!
