About The Teacher

   Hello! I am Mrs. Seckora and this will be my 10th year of teaching, and my 5th year in Mahtomedi. I have my masters in Education-Professional Development and bachelors degrees in Music Education and Music Composition all from the University of Wisconsin - Eau Claire.  I enjoy playing French horn, piano, ukulele, and other instruments in band and orchestra.  I love learning to play new instruments. Right now I'm learning to play guitar, and one day I hope to learn to play the bagpipes!

I live in Cottage Grove with my husband and our two cats, Rory and Carma.  We also welcomed a baby girl to our family this summer, so I will be out on maternity leave for the first half of the 22/23 school year.  

I enjoy a variety of things including playing board games, biking, reading, movies, cooking, camping, traveling, spending time with my family and friends, and of course making and listening to music! 

As I mentioned, I will be on maternity leave the first half of the school year.  I look forward to seeing both new and familiar faces when I return this winter!  While I am on leave, please feel free to contact my Long Term Sub if you have any questions about the music program at Wildwood.

Please watch the Wildwood Newsletter and my webpage for updates on music concerts, field trips, and events over the course of the year.  I look forward to a great year of making music and learning with you all!

Our School
At Wildwood Elementary School, we honor the whole child and teach future-ready skills of inspiring curiosity, embracing change, and turning ideas into action. Our talented teachers and staff members work with students in small class sizes and nurture a culture of excellence that has become the expectation and norm. Our students learn social-emotional skills alongside academic core areas in order to gain the foundation for academic success. In addition, they have the opportunity to engage in learning with specialists in gym, art, media, music, and STEM (Science Technology Engineering and Math) classes. Our elementary school is surrounded by green space and our students enjoy recess at our natural playground and attend classes in our outdoor classroom. We have an engaged and supportive parent community who volunteers and supports the school with academic opportunities and tools. Our District is a leader in engineering and science and we value academic areas that will spark curiosity, fuel creativity, and instill a lifelong passion for innovation in our students.
