    Hi, my name is Sean Fitzsimmons.  I am the Pelican Rapids High School Band Director, grades 5-12.  I have enjoyed teaching in Pelican Rapids since 1995.  I graduated from Eden Prairie High School, then Concordia College, Moorhead in 1992 with a Bachelor of Music Degree in Music Composition/Theory and Instrumental Music Education.  I have a Masters Degree in Instrumental Music Education from North Dakota State University with further graduate study at the University of Minnesota.  I am also on staff with the Minnesota Ambassadors of Music, a group of some of Minnesota's finest band and choir students touring Europe every other year.  

    My first year teaching was in Hills-Beaver Creek Minnesota and I have been in Pelican Rapids ever since.  I completely love my job, and enjoy working with the greatest students and the amazing music they are able to create each and every day.

    When I am not at school, you may find me spending time with my wife and two kids traveling, fishing and tubing out on the pontoon, composing music, painting, and watching the Minnesota Wild and Vikings.
