•  Kara D. Rodden


    My name is Kara Rodden, this is my first year teaching at Decatur ISD and my second year teaching overall. My classes here in Decatur include assisting with High School Band and Jazz Band, assisting with 8th Grade Band, beginner brass (trumpet, trombone, euphonium, and tuba), and 7th grade band.

    I graduated from Tarleton State University with a BM in Music Education. During my time at Tarleton I had wonderful opportunities to play in the Marching and Basketball Bands, Wind Ensemble, Jazz Ensemble, Trumpet Ensembles and so much more. Before attending Tarleton, I graduated from Decatur High School where most of my time was spent playing trumpet for any and every ensemble for which I was available. In my spare time, I typically find myself playing an instrument, making something with yarn or thread, playing with my dog Charlie, or spending time with my family here in Decatur.


    Please feel free to contact me with any questions or concerns.
