Evan Gammon

Middle School & High School Choral Director

Mr. Evan Gammon is in his second year of teaching in the Underwood Community School District and his second year teaching overall. A native of Glenwood, Iowa, Mr. Gammon received his Bachelor of Music Education degree in May 2017 from the University of Northern Iowa. In Summer 2018, Gammon started work towards his Master's of Arts in Teaching degree. Mr. Gammon has a passion for music and is excited to share this with his students. Mr. Gammon’s goal is that everyone in choir will experience the thrill of making music with others and want to continue singing beyond high school.

Sonya Schiphoff

Pre-K - 5th Grade General Music
5th Grade Band & Choir

My name is Mrs. Sonya Schiphoff. This is my 5th year at Underwood but my 9th year of teaching overall. I have a Bachelor of Music degree in Music Education with Piano Emphasis from Simpson College (Go Storm!) and a Master's of Education degree from Western Governors University. 


My hope as a teacher is to instill in students the same love for music that I have experienced my whole life. Besides teaching general music, I enjoy accompanying soloists and choirs, teaching piano lessons, singing in a church choir, and watching performing arts shows.
