Sassene Bridges (Sassie) Music Teacher,

I have   been a music teacher for many years.  Actually, I retired several years ago and have come out of retirement to share my love and passion of music with your children.
I was raised outside of Memphis Tennessee where our classroom music lessons consisted of sitting in straight back chairs and singing songs. Occasionally,  we would use the flutophones ( I don't even think they exist any more).  I always wanted to get out of my seat but that was not allowed.
It was my sophomore year in high school that I was hired by my choir director to be the director of his children's choir at his church.  I fell in love with the children and watching their faces come alive when they sang.  I was hooked!
After graduating from high school I attended the University of Florida and received a Bachelors Degree in Fine Arts (Music Education). Later during my first teaching position with CCSD I continued my education and received a Master's Degree In Elementary Education from the College of Charleston. 
I currently live in Awendaw, SC, some 90 minutes north of Edisto.  I have been fortunate to have two great children that have made my life what it is today, amazing.  I enjoy boating and gardening but mostly adore being a grandmother!
I take great pride in being allowed to come in your child's life and offer them insights and experiences in music that will help to shape them as a young adult and stay with them throughout their lives.
I will be starting a Gospel Choir/Handbell Ringers Club on Wednesday afternoons for 75 minutes after school.  The students will be involved in several programs throughout the school year plus performing within the Edisto Community.  The club is open to all students in grades 3-6. 
I will furnish a snack  for the students prior to our practice session and I ask all parents to pick up their children promptly at 4:45 PM.  More to come on their sign up sheets.
I have an open door policy. . .if you want to visit your child's music class just simply call the office and I will contact you with the info you need to attend your child's music class.  Please know that March is Music In Our School Month and there will be a day set aside where all music classes will be open to parents, grand parents and or special adult friend.
I typically come early to school and stay late, so please feel free to stop by and see me. . .just check in the office first for a pass.
Sincerely,
Sassie Bridges
