Mrs. Sarah Council

Sarah Council is in her eighteenth year teaching in Plano ISD. Both at Plano West and Shepton High School, choirs under her direction and associate direction have received many honors including 2019 and 2011 Texas Music Educators Association Invited Performing Choirs, a 2014 Southwest ACDA convention performance, Best in Class at competitions, UIL Sweepstakes awards, and many students earning places in All-Region and All-State Choirs.  In addition to her work at Plano West, Mrs. Council was honored to serve as the Vocal Chair for TMEA Regions 24 and 25 and Area B. Currently, she is proud to serve as Fine Arts Department Chair at Plano West. 

Mrs. Council is a proud graduate of Baylor University. (Sic ‘em Bears!)  She has served as the Soprano Section Leader for the Texas All State Mixed Choir, and has spent many summers as a section leader for All-State Choir Camps. She is a member of TMEA, TCDA, TMAA and ACDA.  Sarah is proud to have several former students enjoying careers in Music Education, Opera and Musical Theatre, and even more who are enjoying being lifelong musicians and appreciators of music while pursuing other careers. Mrs. Council's passion projects are making music education and performance accessible, equitable and inclusive for all students. 
Fun fact! Mrs. Council has only taught at schools she attended as a student! (PWSH Class of 2002!)
