Music - Mrs. Blackburn

WELCOME
I am ecstatic to be your music teacher this year at Normal Park.  Over the years, and in various states, I have taught Pre-K, Kindergarten, 1st, 2nd, 3rd grades, Choral/Theater 4th - 8th, Reading Intervention 4th - 8th as well as teaching Kindermusik for 11 years.  I have been a part of the Normal Park family as a parent, teacher and a substitute for the past six years and am beginning my 7th year in this dream position of fostering the love and joy of music in children's lives. My hope is that children will explore different ways to incorporate music into their lives in order to bring happiness, wellness and an appreciation of the beauty of music.
If you have any questions or concerns, do not hesitate to reach out to me. 


About Me:
I grew up in Kingsport, TN and discovered a love for music while singing in a children's church choir, playing handbells and taking piano lessons.  I went to King College (it is now King University) and majored in Fine Arts with an emphasis in Music.  I went on to obtain my Masters in Elementary Education and added Music to my teaching certificate.  I have been married to my amazing and supportive husband, Carl, for 29 years and have three precious and awesome children (ages 11, 18 & 22).  I love spending time with my family and three fur babies (Tallie - cat, Gizmo - little dog, and Gus -giant dog).  I enjoy tennis, hiking, biking, reading, cooking and spreading love and joy to kids at school and my church.
My favorites:
Drinks: Unsweet tea, 1/2 sweet Hazelnut bliss from Be Caffeinated or just black coffee
Restaurants: Real Roots Cafe, Milk & Honey, Southern Squeeze, Nic & Norman's, Chicken Salad Chick
Color: Green & Pink
Animals: Sloth, Koala, dogs
Sports: tennis
