About Ms. Scheevel
Jenna Scheevel has joined Athlos Academy of St. Cloud as the new music and band teacher. Scheevel received her associate of fine arts in music from Anoka-Ramsey Community College in Coon Rapids before transferring to St. Cloud State University where she completed her bachelor’s degree in instrumental and classroom music education.“Music has been a part of my whole life,” she said. “Being able to share that passion with younger generations is amazing. This is my fourth year in the professional teaching field and I’m excited to use my previous experiences and knowledge at Athlos.”As a teacher, Scheevel says her best quality is patience. “Having patience while a student is grasping a new concept is extremely important,” she said. “By having patience, my students will receive more help to understand things in class, and I will be able to go back and reteach things multiple times if needed. Patience has been key and continues to be a best quality of mine in many areas of teaching.”
Favorite Performance Character Trait: Humility
“Being humble is a trait I’ve had my whole life,” she said. “Having humility is especially important as a teacher. Being able to admit to a mistake, or being able to say, ‘I don’t know the answer to that question, but I will find out,’ is important. Teachers need to be seen as humans as well, so having humility as a teacher helps to build positive relationships with students and also helps set the idea of growth mindset.”

Q: What are three things most people don’t know about you?
Q: What is your favorite type of physical activity?
A: I enjoy my group workout classes that I attend multiple times per week. I also enjoy running in 5K races and I’m looking forward to running in my first 10K this summer as well as the Tough Mudder in July.
Q: What was your favorite song and why?
A: I can’t pick just one! However, here a couple of my favorites: “Sparks” by Trans-Siberian Orchestra – I love the story being told within this song of a person who has overcome many obstacles and is bringing “sparks” to various places in life; and “I Can Only Imagine” by Bart Millard – this religious piece has many connections to me and gives me goosebumps every time I listen to or sing it.
Q: Who was your favorite musician/band/group and why?
My favorite band is Evanescence. The lead singer, Amy Lee, is absolutely astounding. Her vocal range is so vast and she sounds amazing in every part. I also enjoy the music as a lot of it has “realness” to it and her songs are ones that you can connect with. The music by Evanescence also lays on a large spectrum from lullaby like tunes such as “My Immortal” to ones you can belt out such as “Bring Me to Life.” Overall, my favorite type of music to listen to is rock. My husband and I enjoy attending rock festivals and concerts such as “Rockstar Mayhem” and “Northern Invasion.”
