My name is Miss Sager, and I am thrilled to be starting my second year here in Era ISD as the music teacher! I have loved music all of my life, but I formally started pursuing music when I began piano lessons at the age of nine. What started out as a fun hobby has become one of the main joys of my life. In turn, I now hope to share that joy with others. Music is a wonderful outlet through which students can creatively express themselves. My goal is to provide the tools and experiences that will enable your students to develop both as independent musicians and well-rounded citizens.
I obtained my Bachelor of Arts in Music (with a Minor in Education) from Texas Woman's University. I graduated Summa Cum Laude, and I was one of three graduating seniors from the class of 2016 to be awarded the Outstanding Senior Award by the TWU Former Students Association. I am certified to teach EC-12 Music.
In Era ISD, students in Kindergarten through Fifth Grade attend General Music Class twice a week. Over the course of the year, we will work on building music literacy, healthy singing technique, instrument skills, and much more! At the Junior High and High School levels, students in 8th through 12th grades can enroll in choir classes that meet every day. The choral literature that we learn in class will be used to develop healthy singing techniques and an appreciation of music from cultures both near and far. All students will participate in at least one formal performance during the year, and older students will have multiple performance opportunities. Junior High and High School students will compete as ensembles in the University Interscholastic League Choral Concert and Sight-Reading Contest in the spring, and individuals will have the option of competing in the UIL Solo & Ensemble Contest and auditioning for the Texas Music Educators Association's All-State Choir (High School) or All-Region Choir (Junior High).
Please check this website periodically for important information throughout the year. Elementary Parents, I will also post information through Class Dojo via your student's homeroom class, so please make sure you are signed-up. Thank you, and I look forward to working with students to create beautiful music this year!
