Puster Music

Music with Ms. Tracy
I am so excited to be part of the Specials Team at Puster Elementary!  This will be my 17th year teaching Elementary Music and I plan to make it the best year of my career. 

Before joining LISD, I taught Elementary Music for 9 years for Plano ISD at Gulledge, Haun, and most recently, Christie Elementary.  I also had the pleasure of directing the Plano Children's Chorale for 8 years. 
 
Music has always been an important part of my life.  I began singing in choirs at the age of 4 (in Garland, TX) and never stopped.  This is my 17th year to sing with the Dallas Symphony Chorus.  My first job after college was as an Au Pair in Switzerland where I caught the travel bug.  I have traveled to over 16 counties around the world to experience great works of art, music, architecture and culture.
 
Teaching music is the best job in the world and I look forward to sharing my love of music with your child this year.  If you have any questions or concerns do not hesitate to contact me.  Anne_Tracy@lovejoyisd.net
