Welcome to the Lewiston-Altura Elementary School Website!
Hello! My name is John Harper and I am the K-4 Elementary Music teacher at Lewiston-Altura Elementary School.
I am originally from Southwest Wisconsin and graduated from Richland Center High School in 1991. I graduated from UW-Eau Claire in 1996 with a Bachelors in Music Education and a Masters of Education from Winona State University in 2001. I taught K-12 Vocal/General Music in the Alma Center-Humbird-Merrilan School District in Wisconsin 1996-1999. I have been teaching in the Lewiston-Altura School District since 1999.
I live in Bethany, MN with my family which consists of my wife Emily, daughter Hannah, and two sons Dayton and Seth.
My hobbies include gardening, fishing, hunting, cooking, and playing musical instruments. I enjoy living in SE Minnesota and partaking in the rich culture of the area.
Thanks for visiting the Elementary Music website! Musically yours, Mr. Harper
