Mrs. Jeanne Goodnight

My name is Ms. Goodnight, and I come to Bennett Ranch Elementary with over 30 years’ experience in teaching. 

Having recently retired from the Los Angeles Unified School District as an Instrumental Music Director and Arts Department Chair, I am excited to be teaching in Colorado Springs since I am a Colorado native and have always considered Colorado my home.  During my tenure in LAUSD, my bands and I won numerous awards at the local (Los Angeles), state (California) and national levels, receiving citations from mayors, the California State Senate, the Music Center of Los Angeles and the U.S. House of Representatives. 

I am also an accomplished professional musician, having toured and played on live national television, both in the US and Japan.  I am eager and excited to bring my knowledge and passion for music to Bennett Ranch and look forward to inspiring the next generation of musicians and music lovers!
