Ms. Erin Ellington

Greetings and welcome to music! I am Erin Ellington, music teacher at Mabel and Parkway Schools. This is my sixth year in Watauga County Schools after teaching music in both Raleigh and Chicago. My musical background started with clarinet in the fifth grade and I am beginning to learn the ukelele. I adore chocolate and spending time with my husband, son, and daughter. 

As the Burrows Wellcome Fund Northwest Region Teacher of the Year I am determined to elevate educator voices to empower our students. You are welcome to see the work of our Regional Teacher of the Year cohort on Twitter by following me @ellingtonerinm.

For the 2021-2022 school year, our K-2, 3-5, and 6-8 optional virtual classrooms will house weekly lessons, extension activities, and more. Please visit our virtual music room and reach out at any time!
