About the Teacher
Degrees and Certifications:
My name is Julia McCombs and I have been the music teacher here at MES for 25 years. I was a classroom teacher for three years prior to this, teaching both third grade and kindergarten. Teaching music has been a natural process for me because I incorporated lots of musical activities in my self-contained classrooms such as the learning of rules of grammar and multiplication facts through songs in third grade, as well as phonics songs in kindergarten. I have been married for 37 years and have two daughters, two granddaughters and two grandsons. I truly love what I do at MES and feel very lucky to work with these children.
This is my 28th year of teaching! I was in a third grade classroom for one year and then taught kindergarten for two before changing to music. I have worked all 26 years for St. Clair County, but spent the first two at Odenville.
