Mrs. Janet Medley
Music, Band & Choir

Bachelor of Music from State University of New York; graduate work at McMaster School of Music in Charleston, SC.

SFdS was blessed to have Janet join our school in 2003.  Before moving to Spooner, Janet had several different careers in the music business—including teaching , management and marketing . 

She met her husband, Andy, in Milwaukee and soon after they were married, had two daughters.  They decided to raise their daughters in a rural community, and moved to Spooner in 2003.  Both daughters graduated from St. Francis de Sales and currently attend Spooner High School.  Their family has also hosted high school exchange students the last few years.

“St. Francis de Sales School and Church are a big part of our lives here in the beautiful Northwoods of Wisconsin.  We consider our friends at SFdS as extended family and we are very happy with our decision to move here.  Our children are receiving an excellent education and they are learning life lessons they will take into their adult years.  My job as music instructor lets me see each student grow year after year.  I love that I teach each student at least twice a week for 8 years, or more!  SFdS is a special place and I am honored to be a part of it.”
