Mr. Jarvela

 Greetings, Springfield Township!
 
   I am very excited to be returning for my fourth year at Springfield Township Elementary School, and look forward to a fun, fulfilling, and busy year. 
 
   I graduated from Rowan University in May 2011 with my Bachelor of Music in Music Education, and began my teaching career in Camden, New Jersey. The first instrument I played was the trumpet, and I switched to the trombone when I reached high school. My musical interests cover everything from opera to rap to funk, and everything in between. Hobbies outside of music include travel (I've been to Japan, Canada, Alaska, and have crossed the country twice on roadtrips) and food.
 
   I spent this past summer listening to lots of blues music, in all the shapes and forms you can find it.
