Degrees and Certifications:
Mrs. Kimberly Pollini
I joined the Cottonwood Creek Elementary School staff in November 2019 as the K-5 Primary School Music Teacher. I received my bachelor's degree in Music from Austin College in Sherman, Texas. I have also completed graduate studies in vocal pedagogy and music education from Southwest Texas State, and I'm certified in K-12 music education. I have worked as a music educator since 2002 in both elementary and middle schools in the Dallas and Austin area and have completed both PYP and MYP IB training in categories 1 and 2 through those experiences. I have also been certified in Kodaly Level I & II. I believe that a teacher can only be as effective as the extent of love that they possess for the subject they are teaching. I want to instill that love in my students and share the opportunities that I received from my former teachers. My goal is to validate the importance of music to human development, foster intellectual development, and cultivate the creativity of the mind and passion of the soul. I am honored to have the privilege of teaching the students of Cottonwood Creek Elementary School!
This year, though we are starting out the year remotely, you can still count on my active presence in your child's music education. Anyone can follow me on my instagram page, Cottonwood Creek Music. I look forward to the growth that we will all gain from this unexpected but exciting and adventurous year!
