Mrs. Rose Dunphey

I am thrilled to be returning to Palmer Ridge Choirs. I love music and the people who love music! And other people.

I have worked in D38 for 15 great years, first as the Choral Director and Associate Band Director at Lewis-Palmer High School, then as Choral Director at Palmer Ridge for its first few years, then as Lead Teacher at the D38 HomeSchool Enrichment Academy. I am glad to return to such an outstanding school as Palmer Ridge.

I attended the University of Oregon, where I earned Bachelor's degrees in Music and Physical Education, and a Master of Music Education.  

Outside of school, I am a private music instructor, choral and instrumental arranger, and performing guitarist and bassist. I am also a Mama Bear, as my 2 teens attend Palmer Ridge High School!

In addition to all things music, I love riding my bike, hiking, and nature photography.
