About the Director
This is Ellen Parks’ second year at Kealing Middle School. She is extremely excited to lead the choir and music appreciation students through a very fun, successful school year, full of meaningful projects, challenging classwork, and stellar performances! Ms. Parks grew up in Georgetown, Texas where she was very involved in High School choir. At that time, she learned how rewarding it is to work intensely with a group of singers who are passionate about music and are striving towards the goal of musical, professional, performances.
Ms. Parks graduated from The University of Texas at Austin, and has a Bachelor of Music in Choral Music Studies. She also had the great privilege of studying at the Kodaly Institute in Hungary on a Fulbright Scholarship. Last year, Ms. Parks was honored to be named Kealing’s Teacher of Promise.
Ms. Parks is eager and willing to get to know all of her students and their parents. Please feel free to contact her at any time regarding any questions, concerns, or feedback. You are an essential part of this program!
