Please permit me to introduce myself, I am Kimberly Lott your General Music Teacher. Choosing music to teach was simple. Music is beautiful, rigorous, and fun to create. Working in a career I enjoy is exciting even after twenty years of teaching elementary, middle, and high school. I come from a long line of educators who instilled in me the virtue of being an avid learner.
I was born in the Mid-West (Chicago, Illinois) and remained there until moving to Georgia in 1999. My music journey began when I was five years old singing in choir. Instruments I liked playing were the clarinet, recorder, and saxophone. Unfortunately, the piano did not make the list. In school, I was a member of the chorus, madrigal singers, marching band, symphonic wind ensemble, and jazz band. While in college I was a freelance vocalist and tutor. I am an alumnus of Whitney M. Young Magnet High School; Roosevelt University, Chicago College of Performing Arts (Bachelor of Music in Education); and Nova Southeastern University, Fischler College of Education (Masters of Arts in Teaching and Learning). I also carry certificates in Orff Schulwerk Levels I and II.
When I’m not in the classroom I enjoy spending time with family and friends, shopping, gardening, and DIY projects. I am the steward of the Little Free Library at Flippen and live in Fayette County with my husband, daughters, and dog.
