Hello. My name is Cindy Hargraves. I am honored to be your child's music education teacher at McGhee Elementary. This is my 14th year as an elementary music specialist in Channelview ISD; this is my 20th 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, '91-'93. Afterwards, I attended Stephen F. Austin State University where I received a Bachelor's of Music Education, K-12th grade, May '98. I began my music education career in Van, Tx, 2003-2009. In the summer of 2009, my family relocated to Channelview, where I taught at Schochler Elementary for 13 years.
My favorite things are spending time with my family- my daughter and son-in-law, Kendall and Kirklynn, my handsome grandson, Kayson, my daughter and son-in-law, Hannah and Axel, my husband, Larry, and my dog, Chloe. 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.
