I am Maria Carpenter, the music teacher at Mary Queen of Peace. I have been teaching music to MQP students since 2003. I have a Bachelor of Arts degree from the College of St. Benedict, where I majored in music, with a concentration in vocal performance. Later, I received a certificate in Elementary Education from the College of St. Catherine. In addition to teaching at MQP, I enjoy teaching piano and voice lessons to many students. I love spending time with my husband, Aaron, and our three children, Noah, Isabella, and Emma.
A favorite Bible verse of mine is, “For I know the plans that I have for you,’ declares the Lord, ‘plans for welfare and not for calamity to give you a future and a hope.” – Jeremiah 29:11
