    Mr. Scheffel, Head Band Director:

    Hello Wallace Middle School,
    My name is Paul Scheffel and I am honored to be the new head director at Wallace.  I have been an assistant band director at WMS for the last three years and have seen first hand how amazing our students are.  
    I am a native of San Antonio.  I received a bachelors degree in music education from the University of Texas at Austin (Hook ‘Em!)and am entering my 10th year teaching middle school band in the Houston and Austin areas.  I received my Masters degree in wind band conducting from Louisiana State University (Geaux Tigers!) and have 
    been teaching at Wallace since 2017.  
    “Performing with Pride” has been the motto for the Wallace Middle School band since I have been here.  This means that we provide an inviting, safe, and fun environment where students can learn how to become better musicians and human beings through hard work and dedication.  If we do these things, then we will always “Perform with Pride!”
    Band parents, Mr. Haynes and myself will work tirelessly to create the safest possible environment in which our students can play their instruments.  Be sure to follow our Wallace Middle School Ranger Band Facebook page to get more info about upcoming events and please don’t hesitate to email if you have any questions.  
    I look forward to a great school year!
