Ms. Jacie Matzke

Music and Band Teacher

My name is Jacie Matzke and I am so excited to begin my second year here at Palmer Lake Elementary! I am a Colorado Springs native and a District 20 graduate. I completed my Bachelor of Music Education degree at the University of Northern Colorado (Greeley) in the Fall of 2020. After five years in the Northern Colorado area I am happy to be back home!

#WhyITeach: I teach music because of what it did for me when I was a student. Being involved in music  taught me important life skills like teamwork and perseverance, gave me my closest friends, my favorite school memories, and the opportunity to be involved with performances that felt like magic. I hope to provide those opportunities to every student who sets foot in the music classroom. 

When I’m not teaching or in a rehearsal, you can find me hanging out with my family and friends, eating yummy food, or curled up with a good book.

I adore teaching music, and I cannot wait to get to know and learn alongside your children this year! If you ever need to get in touch with me, please feel free to call or email me at any time. I will get back to you within 24 hours during the school week.
