Degrees and Certifications:
Greetings JES!!! My name is Ms. Zerbe and I am the music teacher here at Jackson Elementary. This is my fourth year as Jackson Elementary Music Teacher. Previously, I worked 11 years at Clayton County Schools as a music therapist and 4 years in at a facility in Pittsburgh. I absolutley love teaching music and sharing my love of music with our students here at Jackson Elementary.
When I am not at JES in the music room, I love being on the lake, traveling, hiking, and kayaking. If it is outdoors, I am right there!
I am originally from Northwestern Pennsylvania. I received my Bachelor of Science degree in music therapy from Elizabethtown College. I then completed several music education courses at Carnegie Mellon University before moving to Georgia, where I completed more music education courses at Georgia State University. Later, I graduated from Valdosta State University with a Master's Degree of Teaching in Special Education.
Instruments that I play are piano, clarinet, and guitar. I love to sing, and can often be found making songs up about anything and everything!
I look forward to working with all of the Jackson Elementary School students this year!!!
