Degrees and Certifications:
Mrs. Candice Stout
I am delighted to serve as the music teacher for all PreK-2nd grade students at Sunnyvale Elementary. This marks my 3rd year at Sunnyvale Elementary and my 17th year teaching elementary music.
I am a southern girl. I was born in Alabama, grew up in Texas, and attended Plano schools before moving to a deer ranch in Eastern Oklahoma during my years at Southeastern Oklahoma State University. I met my husband while working at a steakhouse in Denison, Texas. We married and headed out on an adventure to the moutains and snow of Colorado for an amazing 13 years. With the births of nieces and nephews near Dallas, we left our snow shovels behind and are happy to be back home in Texas and near our families.
Before we moved home to Texas, I worked as a music teacher of Kindergarten-5th grade students near Denver, Colorado and Pre-K through 5th grade students, as well as a French horn private lesson instructor in Southern Oklahoma. It is my grand hope that when a child leaves my room, they will be filled with the inspiration of a world where people, objects, and sounds work together to create a greater harmony than what could be achieved alone.
When not making music with my students, I love to read, travel with my husband and family, paper craft cards and scrapbooks, try my hand at homemade jewelry, and many other crafts.
