Ms. Marian Paulson


My name is Ms.Paulson and I am the new music teacher at MLK Jr High, and I am very excited to be able to share with you the art and fun of making music. I grew up in the area for my later years of high school attending Antioch High School, and then attended Los Medanos Community College, which is when I made the decision that I wanted to Major in Music and be a music teacher. When I finished at LMC, I then transferred to San Jose State University where I received my Bachelor's in Music Education and later also received my Credential. 

My main instrument is the saxophone, I also played the clarinet. I was in various groups while I attended SJSU from large ensembles like wind ensemble, and marching band to small groups and quartets. This will be my 4th year teaching, and I am delighted to go through this journey with you however it may unfold. 

I know the uncertainty of everything happening arounds can be intense and difficult to manage but we are in this together, and I will guide you to the very best of my ability. Scholars, I can't wait to meet you! Let's build an amazing community where everyone is welcome!
