Teacher Bio

Ms. Dottie AbshireBelieve it or not, even with 15 years of teaching experience and a master's of Curriculum and Instruction from Colorado Christian University, I learn new things every day! 
My first love is music, and I hold a Bachelor of Music degree, play the piano and organ, and sing. My second love is all things Disney! Some say I missed my calling as a Disney princess. In my free time, I love to travel to new places, play music, write children's stories, and draw a little. I'll take any opportunity to dress up, and I'm am an avid supporter of the performing arts, with musicals being my #1 favorite! 
I have a 2nd grade daughter in the French program, and oui, je parle un peu Français, thanks to my Cajun French heritage. Born in Lake Charles, Louisiana, and raised all over the South, I make a mean gumbo and even better beignets. 
My passion centers around creating a positive impact, being the teacher I always wanted to have. Thank you for the privilege of being a positive influence in your child's life!
