Featured Faculty – Mrs. Erin Mahr

Mrs. Erin Mahr, Band Director

How are you connected to AHS?

I am the band director and assistant drama director at Assumption.

What do you love most about working at Assumption?

The students – they are hard working, kind, creative, strong, and dedicated to being their best.

What are some things you enjoy doing in your free time?

I love running, playing the flute in the Quad City Wind Ensemble and the Maple City Band, performing improvised comedy with G.I.T. Improv, playing electric bass in a cover band, and spending time with my husband (Jeremy) and 3 cats (Dobby, Calico, and Ripley).

What advice or encouragement do you have to share with current and future students?

When times get tough, take time to be creative – write a story, write a poem, draw a picture, or compose a song. Also, go to your band lessons.

What is your favorite Bible verse?

“I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me.” – Philippians 4:13
