5th-8th Grade Orchestra 


Welcome to the 2018-2019 Middle School Orchestra!  I am excited for a great year of making music in orchestra at the middle school as well as 5th grade at Washington.  


My past teaching experiences include private string lessons and middle school orchestra in Aberdeen, SD.  I have a B.S. in Music Education, a Masters in Music/Music Education, and am currently a doctoral candidate for a DMA in music education research through Boston University.  I am the orchestra chair on the South Dakota Music Educator's Association as well as the choir director and church accompanist at Riverview United Methodist Church in Huron.  I play violin as concertmaster in the LyricWood Orchestra at Dakota Wesleyan University and the Aberdeen University Civic Symphony at Northern State University.

Teresa Smith

Vocal Music & General Music


 My name is Teresa Smith and I am the vocal music and general music teacher here at Huron Middle School. I am also in charge of our middle school fall play. I am starting my 28th year of teaching and I have been at HMS since 1999. 

On weekends, you can find me at my church where I'm the music director. 

I have three children. Two of them are grown and have exciting careers. My third is a student at HHS. 

My husband and I have been married for nearly 28 years. We enjoy spending time at the river going fishing and spending time with our family.
