Hello Wranglers!
  
My name is Kris Diamond and I am so proud to be starting my 8th year at Sage Canyon as the general music specialist.  This is my 10th year in Douglas County and will be my 15th year teaching.  I am a graduate of the University of Colorado, where I was an active member of the music department and Golden Buffalo Marching Band.  I earned my masters degree in music education from Boston University and completed my full certification as a Kodály music educator at Colorado State University.  It is my philosophy that all children are given the opportunity to truly appreciate music in all of it's many forms.  That may mean playing instruments, singing, listening, dancing, composing, and just generally enjoying MUSIC!  I like my students to know that although we may all have different tastes in music, it is important to be able to appreciate and respect the tastes of others and know that it is fun to enjoy many genres of music.  Some of my personal favorites are The Beatles, Beethoven, Led Zeppelin, Bob Marley, Tchaikovsky, John Williams, Rodrigo y Gabriela, ADELE, Ella Fitzgerald, AC/DC, Duke Ellington, Josquin Des Prez, Dave Matthews, and many more!

I am originally from Truckee, CA - just North of Lake Tahoe.  I chose to come to Colorado to attend CU-Boulder, where I met my husband in the marching band.  We have been married for 14 years and have two boys. Nick will be in 1st grade at SGCE this year and Paul had his 3rd birthday this past June. We all love to call Castle Rock home!!!

I look forward to meeting more Sage Canyon families this year!  We have a great school community and I feel so fortunate to be a part of it!
