Mrs. Suzanne Lee
I am excited to begin another year of music with the wonderful students at Ballentine Elementary! We have the BESt students and this will be another fun year as we learn to better ourselves as musicians. We'll be playing instruments, have fun with games, moving, and creating our own music all while enjoying the time with each other.
This begins year 24 teaching music, and it has flown by! I received my Bachelor of Music Education degree from Carson-Newman University, my Master's of Church Music Degree with an emphasis in Music Education from The Southern Baptist Theological Seminary, and am a National Board Certified teacher with another 30 hours of post-master's work. I have completed all three levels of the Orff-Schulwerk training, which is a way of teaching children music as they play. When you come into my classroom, you'll more than likely observe children playing the instruments, singing, moving--hardly ever in their seats!
I am married to David Lee and we have two daughters, Elloa Davis and Kristin Fish. We have a beautiful granddaughter, Addison, who is sixand loving music already. Addison's baby brother, Lincoln, is 1. I love to cook, read, and play with Addison! I also am an Independent Sales Director with Mary Kay Cosmetics.
