Mrs. Vanessa Chavez
I am originally from Edinburg, Texas, located in the Rio Grande Valley and moved to Plano after graduating from the University of North Texas with my degree in Music Education. I reside here with my husband and my dachshund Winston and toddler, Alana. In my free time, when I am not singing or teaching, I enjoy reading the classics, yoga, cycling & cooking.
I graduated in 2005 with a double degree in Vocal Performance & Music Education from the University of North Texas. This is my 13th year teaching choir and my 8th year teaching at Otto since the school opened. Working at the middle school level is my passion because it is at this time that so many developmental changes are happening. Everyday I get to work with students. In addition to working on their musical skills, vocal technique and vocal growth, I especially love this job because I get to see the students grow into young adults who take risks and challenge themselves.
