Mrs. Jennifer Masrud


        Hello, my name is Jennifer Masrud and this is my 5th year as Music Specialist at Chelsea Heights Elementary and my 26th year in SPPS. My teaching experience has mostly been in Classroom Music with students in Grades k-5.  I have also enjoyed teaching EDL Choir, African drumming, Guitar and Ukulele.       

        When I am not at Chelsea Heights I like to sing in my church, go to concerts, spend time with my family and travel whenever I get the chance.  My husband Dan and I are from Wisconsin.  When we were first married we moved to Texas where both our daughter Meghan and our son Jared were born.  We've lived in West St. Paul for 26 years.

        It is a privilege to be a member of the Chelsea Heights Community.  I thoroughly enjoy making beautiful music with our talented students.  I look forward to connecting with famiies and building strong relationships with my students while we learn about music together!
