This week we are featuring our amazing Music teacher, Melody Flannagan. We’re so lucky to have her talents shared with our kiddos! Here is more about Melody!
What is your name, and what grade/specialty do you teach?
Hi , I am Melody Flannagan. I teach k-5 Music.
Tell us a bit about your family. Do you have kids? If so, what ages are they? Do you have pets?
Family! Oh yes I have family. We are a blended family. I have 5 kids and my husband has 2…so we have 7! The youngest is 14 and the oldest is 24. We have so many kids that sometimes we confuse or forget their names so we just numbered them all! “Hey 3 of 7, clean your room!”
We have one pet. Molly is a small black poodle. She is 12 years old.
What are your hobbies? What do you love to do outside of work?
I love to make jewelry. I am also crocheting a couple blankets right now.
My husband Mike, and I love to go out riding on the Harley. I have seen a few kids from school when we are out riding but the kids rarely recognize me in all the black leather!
But the thing that REALLY makes me happy is spending time with the family. It is very rare to get all the kids together at once because some of them live so far away. So I am happy with every little moment we have!
How long have you been teaching, and how many years at Crescent Heights?
How Long? I have been teaching MUSIC FOREVER! I taught in Kent for 12 years then came to the Tacoma School District when they OPENED Crescent Heights. So I have been around a very long time! This is a Milestone year-#30! I don’t feel like it has been that long. I always feel like I am learning new things.
Thank you Melody, for sharing your love of music with Crescent Heights!
