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 in Planowith my husband, my dachshund, Sir Winston and two children Alana (2) and Andres (3 mos).  In my free time, when I am not singing, teaching, or spending time with family, I enjoy reading, 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 15th year teaching choir and my 10th year teaching at Otto since the school opened. I am passionate about working with middle school students because it is so rewarding to see them grow as musicians and as young adults who take risks and challenge themselves. In these uncertain times, I am excited  to connect with students and see them grow as a musicians and make a difference in this world through music.
