Mr. Zack Crissman

I grew up in Chesapeake, Virginia and attended East Carolina University in Greenville, NC.  I graduated from ECU with a Bachelor's of Music in Music Education in 2014.  After graduating, I moved to Houston, TX where I taught 5th grade music at KIPP Academy West for one year and was the assistant band director at Cypress Park High School in Cypress, TX for two years. When I’m not in the classroom, I like to be outside, having fun with my wife, Morgan and our dogs, Basil and Pippa.

I am so excited to be joining the team at Bowie as the music teacher!  In my class, we will sing, dance, and play instruments in order to develop a life-long love of learning and music.  In addition, we will focus on musical literacy and the cultural role of music in countries around the world.  I am passionate about music and knowledge and hope to pass that onto my students.

I am looking forward to meeting all of my students and their families this year!
