“I am excited to be a support system for our teachers at O’Leary, to work with a great team this year and am anxious for the school year to start,” Paegitzer said in a statement.

White is moving to Twin Falls from the Nampa School District. He started his career in the Melba School District, where he taught kindergarten-through-12th-grade music for three years.

He has been a music teacher at Skyview High School, serving as the marching and jazz band director and a guitar instructor for the past three years. He was also the band director chairman for the District 3 educators while at Skyview High.

White holds a bachelor’s degree from Boise State University and a master’s degree from the University of Idaho.

“I think Twin Falls has the perfect climate for making huge strides in education,” White said in a statement. “With the growth of Twin Falls, it is a perfect time to explore and implement some big ideas that will improve education for our students.”
