Welcome back, Thunderbolts! I am looking forward to making new musical memories this year at Thousand Oaks Elementary! This will be my 24th year teaching - my 8th year at Thousand Oaks. I have taught middle school choir, private school PreK and elemetary music. I love teaching and I love music - getting to share my love and knowledge with others is a great privilege.
I am a graduate of Mac Arthur High School and was a member of the Texas All-State Choir. I attended Texas Tech University, where I studied voice and music education #wreckem! While a student at Tech I was privileged to study under Dr. Kenneth Davis (choral conducting and methods) and Mary Gillas (voice). I now sing twice a year in the semi-professional chorus called the "Ken Davis Chorale".
My husband, Scott, and I have been married for 27 years. We have 4 children - 2 Aggies, a Roadrunner and an 8th grade Bradley Bear - and 2 puppies!
Mrs. Byers' music room is ready for you -- I look forward to seeing your smiling faces each day you come to music!
