Hello, my name is Dee Truelove. I have been an Elementary School Music Teacher in the public school system. I am retiring from public school after 29 years. I will be teaching music at CCA this fall. I wanted to tell you a little about myself. I have been married to my husband for 32 years. We have 2 sons and 3 beautiful grandbabies. We are members at North Side Baptist Church and are involved in many ministries there. I started my teaching career at Travis Elementary, the same school I attended as a child. I moved to Bose Ikard Elementary when it was opened and Travis was closed. I graduated from Weatherford High School in 1981. I then attended Weatherford College where I received my Associates degree in 1983. I went on to University of Texas in Arlington where I received my Bachelor of Music Education in 1985. I am certified K-12. Since finishing at UTA I have gone on to receive my Level One certification in Kodaly Music Method from University of North Texas. I also have Level One and Two in the Orff Music Method from University of Texas in Brownsville and Trinity University in San Antonio. I am very excited about teaching at CCA and look forward to working with your students.
