She worked in the Städtische Musikschule Aschaffenburg for 14 years teaching voice, chamber music, and directed various ensembles. After having 3 beautiful children, (Daniel, Noah, and Emma- all SMHS graduates!) her family moved back to Texas in 2006 and she started her life as a full-time choral director. Mrs. Sheridan has been with SMCISD since 2009, where she started the choir program at Miller MS. She has been directing choirs at San Marcos HS since 2012, and is thrilled that Mrs. Brigitte Smith joined her as co-director in 2016.
