Degrees and Certifications:
Hello! Welcome to the South Central music page! On this page you will find a class schedule, information about the music program, Tennessee state music standards, and helpful music links.
In the near future I will be creating a Bitmoji classroom with some fun stuff on it! Stay tuned!
***As of right now, our main source of lessons and communication will be on Google Classroom. I will provide the links to those pages below.
About Mrs. Houston
My name is Mrs. Houston and I am so excited to be your music teacher!
I was born in Boone, North Carolina then moved to Damascus, Virginia when I was six. I attended Holston High School and after graduating I attended Emory & Henry College in Virginia. I graduated with a Bachelor of Arts in K-12 Music Education and I am certified in general, vocal, and instrumental music. My main instruments are piano and trumpet and I love to sing! After I graduated college I immediatley began teaching in Tennessee and have stayed in this state every since!
This will be my tenth year of teaching. I taught three years in Greene County, TN, five years in Bristol City, TN and this will be my second year in Washington County, TN!
I have lived in Washington County for several years with my wonderful husband and my cat named Ms. Tiddles (pictured below!). I enjoy running, crafting, vacationing at the beach (as you can tell from my picture!) eating, kayaking, spending time with my family and friends, and of course, anything music related!
Always feel free to email me with any questions!
