Yolanda Alaniz

Welcome to E.P.I.S.D.'s Guillen M.S. Orchestra!

vn shadowI am Mrs. Yolanda Aranda Alaniz.  I received my BA in Music Education All Level from Texas State University in San Marcos, Texas in 2003.  I have taught in the following school districts;  San Marcos CISD, Hays CISD, Austin ISD, and El Paso ISD. 

This is my first year at Guillen as the Orchestra Director.  I am excited to be working with the orchestra students.  The students and I have worked together in past years when I was either the assistant orchestra teacher or the guitar teacher. 

Our music programs are a great place for our students to be themselves, explore, and create music.  We are ecstatic to perform for you on our many up coming events.  See you there!
