About Jan Blize

Welcome to My Personal Page

Hi. I am Ms. Blize, and I am the head choir director at Paris H.S.

This is my 34th year of teaching, and I have been employed by Paris I.S.D. for 31 of those years. 

I feel very blessed to teach in a school district that values the importance of music education.

If you are one of my new students, welcome to our choir family.

If you are one of my returning students, welcome back.  I look forward to another amazing year with you!

If you are one of my former students, I hope you are continuing to pursue excellence in everything you do.  Thank you for still caring about the tradition of excellence you established and/or carried on while you were a part of our choir program.

If you are a parent of one of my students, thank you for allowing me the opportunity to use the medium of vocal music to teach your child how to live, love, laugh, and learn.

To anyone else visiting this site, I wish you a blessed day.
