Mrs. Potempa

Darian Potempa has been with Band for Today for ten years. She graduated from the University of Illinois at Urbana- Champaign with a Bachelor in Music Education.

Darian thinks that music is an integral part of a student’s education. Working together with the teacher and other students can build self esteem and confidence. She feels that music is a versatile education tool. It can teach self discipline as well as working together as a team.

Outside of teaching Darian enjoys playing clarinet in a woodwind/sting ensemble at the church she attends. She also enjoys participating in dog agility classes and trials with her papillon Samantha.
