    About Mrs. Carpenter

    Dear Parents and Students,

     
    My name is Penelope Carpenter and I am very excited to be joining the CMS Sabercat team! I am an Arizona native, born and raised in Tempe, AZ. While attending Corona del Sol High School, I discovered my love for choral music. I went on to study choral music education with an emphasis in piano and a minor in Spanish at Arizona State University (Go Devils!). Music is second only to my family: I am very blessed to be married to a fellow music educator at the collegiate level. I'm also the proud Mom of Logan (4) and Piper (1). 
     
    This is my first year in the Kyrene school district. I student taught at Kyrene Middle School with Julie Hackmann in 2009.  I feel very fortunate to be a part of this excellent community of teachers, students, and families as CMS' chorus teacher.  I look forward to a wonderful year with your students full of music!

     Warmly,

    Mrs. Carpenter
