My name is Elizabeth Weiser, and I will be the new Band Director at Fontana in the fall. I graduated from Illinois State University in 2017 and have spent the past three years teaching middle school band, general music, and choir in Illinois. Clarinet is my primary instrument, but I also enjoy playing saxophone, trombone, guitar, piano, and many other instruments. I live in the Chicago suburbs with my husband, Eric, and my cat, Polly. I am very excited to be joining the Fontana family and am looking forward to meeting everyone in the fall!
