About Mrs. Wetle…



Hello!  My name is Mrs. Danielle Wetle.  I teach all of the general music classes, 1st through 5th, at Palos West, half of the general music classes at Palos East, and direct the 4th and 5th grade choir at Palos West.  I began in this school district in August, 1988 after graduating from the University of Illinois, Champaign-Urbana with a Bachelor of Science degree in Music Education.  I continued at the U of I for several consecutive summers and completed my Master’s degree in Music Education in August, 1993, while serving as a camp counselor/private teacher for Illinois Summer Youth Music camp.  Discovering Orff-Schulwerk during my studies at the U of I led me to pursue more course work at DePaul University in Chicago.  I have completed all three levels in the training course and look forward to working on a Master of Orff-Schulwerk certificate.

In my free time, I freelance as a strolling violinist in Chicago, perform with Chicago area string ensembles, and play with the Roy Vombrack Orchestra.

My husband, also a musician, and I have three children, a golden retriever, “Lucky”, and several fish.   We reside in the western suburbs and enjoy outdoor activities and making music together!

"Music speaks what cannot be expressed;
Soothes the mind & gives it rest;
Heals the heart and makes it whole;
Flows from heaven to the soul."
