About the Music Teacher
My name is Heather Shaw, and I am excited to be starting my fourth year at Normal Park Museum Magnet School. This is my 17th year teaching elementary music. I hold a Master of Music Education degree from UTC and a Bachelor of Music Education degree from Lee University. I have been Level I certified in the Kodaly music education method since 2006, and this summer, I attended two weeks of training to receive Level 1 certification in the Orff-Schulwerk music education model.
In my spare time, I love to sing and write songs with my piano or guitar. I also enjoy curling up with a cup of coffee and a good book. On school holidays, I can often be found hiking or relaxing by a campfire with my husband, my two kids, and my dog Luna.
I believe every child can be musical, and I look forward to sharing many creative moments with my students this year.
