Music

My name is Tamara Wixon and I have taught for Omaha Public Schools since January 1999. I started teaching at Boyd in August of 2006 and received my degree in music education from the University of Nebraska at Omaha. On my time off I enjoy watching sports, attending concerts, exercising, and being with my family. When weather permits, I enjoy being outdoors walking and playing with the dogs.
