Mrs. Ciemiewicz named LLMEA Music Teacher of the Year

Congratulations to Lauren Ciemiewicz, Penn Manor High School choral director and music teacher, for being named Teacher of the Year by the Lancaster-Lebanon Music Educators Association.

Lauren was nominated by an LLMEA member and selected for this honor by the entire association, which includes Lancaster and Lebanon Counties, at its April 18 banquet.

“We congratulate Lauren on being named Teacher of the Year. Her unwavering dedication to her craft and students is truly remarkable,” said Baron Jones, Penn Manor High School principal.

In addition to teaching piano and guitar classes, Mrs. Ciemiewicz directs the Penn Manor Chorus, Manor Singers and Vocal Jazz Ensemble. She is now in her 12th year at Penn Manor.

“I am so honored to have received this award,” she said. “I’m extremely blessed that I get to make music with amazing students each and every day!”

Mrs. Ciemiewicz is currently attending the All-State Music Ensembles Festival in the Poconos with two of those students – Nicole Chen and Kaleb Kabakjian.

Many thanks to Mrs. Ciemiewicz, and congratulations on this well-deserved honor!
