Hello. My name is Cindy Hargraves. I am honored to be your child's music education teacher at Schochler Elementary. This is my 11th year at Schochler Elementary; my 17th year as a music educator. I am a vocalist, pianist, and a choral conductor. I grew up in the oldest town in Texas, Nacogdoches. Elementary music class was always my favorite in school, and that love for music continued as I grew. I attended Kilore College, then Stephen F. Austin State University, where I received a Bachelor's of Music Education. I began my music ed career in Van, Tx, 2003-2009. In the summer of 2009, my family relocated to Channelview, where I've been teaching at Schochler Elementary ever since.
My favorite things are spending time with my family- my two girls, Kendall and Hannah, my husband, Larry, and my dogs- Chloe and Bella. My favorite place to visit is the beach. I also enjoy spending time with dear friends who are like my second family at First Baptist North Channel where I serve as music minister, and my husband serves as pastor.
