Welcome! My name is Elaina Malcolm and I am the Choir teacher for both ACE and Global Connection students on the Tyee Campus. I have taught music and choir classes in the Highline Public Schools since 1998. I was the Choir teacher here at Tyee in 2004-05 so it feels great to be back leading this wonderful group of vocalists and musicians! We are currently expanding our vocal music program to include a Theater club that meets every Tuesday after school and an after school Choir next door at Chinook Middle School. I am also the Choir teacher for Pacific Middle School and together these ensembles create incredible music everyday. I'm so excited to showcase the amazing talent that these students will bring to the stage when we perform this year.
Everyday my students challenge me to think differently about how to teach music in culturally rich environment. I'm looking forward to share the great learning that is happening in our choir this year at Tyee. Contact me via email if you have any questions. I'm here to support all of our students in Highline Schools.
