All About Me

My name is Portia Crooks, I live in Calgary and have been married for 18 years.  My husband is a high school teacher for a Charter school in Calgary.  We have an active 13 year old son, named Lachlan,  who is consumed by hockey and rugby,  and one huge dog, Bodhi, the bloodhound.  We spend a lot of time at the off-leash dog park.  In my spare time I enjoy spending time with my family, composing music and walking our crazy dog!

I have my Music Degree in Jazz Studies (vocal performance) and my Bachelor of Education from the University of Calgary.  I have been teaching music for the last 17 years.  I started at Sarah Thompson in its inaugural year and teach music to students in Grades 1 to Grade 5.  I am passionate about teaching music to children.  My philosophy is to provide a safe and caring environment where children are encouraged to develop a healthy sense of self, respect for others, and a strong educational foundation.
