Mrs. Strickler

Hi Everyone!  Thank you for visiting the CCMS Chorus page!  As we get ready to begin a new year, I encourage you to take a moment to consider what effect studying and participating in music can have on your child and the development of all children in our society.  Music not only impacts academic achievement, it also shapes the way our students understand themselves and the world around them.  Please checkout Broader Minded - Education for the Whole Child, along with several eye-opening articles regarding the benefits of music education, located under Benefits of Music Education on the left side of this page.  

My wish list for the chorus room is as follows:
PANTYHOSE (yes, this is true)
USED SOCKS (washed first would be great)
Donations of general school supplies like pencils and paper are always welcome!

And now that I have given my two cents... I am happy to be a part of the CCMS Choral Program and look forward to sharing many great musical moments!  I am currently in my twelfth year teaching middle school chorus in North Carolina.  In addition to being a part of school music programs, I also have experience directing church choirs and handbells with both adults and younger folks.  

In my spare time, I enjoy taking in the outdoors with my husband Andrew, the Director of Bands at Asheville Middle School, and our dog Moe.

Please feel free to contact me directly with any questions you have about CCMS chorus.  For questions on expectations or events, feel free to visit the Chorus Contract
 section of this site.  This contract contains a full year calendar.  For other events, you may also visit the calendar section of this page.
