Degrees and Certifications:

Mrs. Cirihal


My name is Teresa Cirihal and I am one of the music teachers at Cleveland Elementary.  This will be my 9th year at Cleveland and I am so fortunate to have built long lasting relationships with the students and families within the Cleveland community.  I also teach orchestra at Franklin HS so I am lucky to have many of my former Cleveland students back in my program at FHS.

In music class we will be working on reading rhythms, singing, performing on instruments such as tubano drums, boomwhackers, ukuleles, xylophones, recorders, hand percussion and piano. We will be moving to music, composing and creating our own musi,c and learning about great musicians and composers of yesterday and today.   My goal is to inspire and create the desire to learn more about music.  Watching students grow and develop a confidence to participate and perform is so rewarding.  

I am a wife and a mother.  My daughter is 10 and my son is 7.  We like traveling, relaxing at the pool and outdoor activites.

The music room is always appreciative of donations of kleenex, hand sanitizer, pencils, and white board markers.

I look forward to an exciting year and please feel free to contact me with any compliments, question, or concerns!
