Graham, Teresa

Teresa Graham - music specialist My name is Terry Graham.  I am very fortunate to have taught music at Taylor Elementary since 1989. Peggy Drennan established the music program at Taylor in 1964.  She retired after 27 years.  I was blessed to teach with her for two years, and then to follow her as the music specialist at Taylor.

I grew up in Ballinger, Texas graduating from Ballinger High School.  While there, I played the flute and piccolo, and took many years of piano lessons.  I have a Bachelor of Music Education from Angelo State University where my major instrument was piano with a double minor in flute and organ.  I attended graduate school at Texas Tech University graduating, again, from Angelo State with a Master of Arts in Teaching.  I am Kodaly certified through the West Texas Kodaly Initiative at Texas Tech University, and orff certified through SMU.

I began my teaching career in San Angelo ISD in a 6th grade classroom.  I loved teaching math, reading, social studies, and science!  I then stayed home for several years with my three boys and taught private piano lessons.  In 1989, I began teaching music part time at Taylor.  Two years later, I became the fulltime music specialist at Taylor.  It has been my home ever since. Taylor Elementary has become a huge part of my life and my family.
