Welcome to UMS Band!
My name is Daphne Monson and 2019-20 will be my twentieth year of teaching at Urbandale Middle School. An alum of Urbandale High School, I received my Bachelor of Music Education from Morningside College in Sioux City. I spent one year teaching middle school band in the LeMars Community School District before coming back home to J-Hawk Country. My husband, Brent, teaches in the Recess program at Urbandale High School, and my daughter is in fourth grade at Karen Acres this year. We are a J-hawk family!
