Jessica Fitzwater, 28

FCPS, Oakdale Elementary School —-K-5 general music teacher

It was an easy road for Jessica Fitzwater from childhood concert-goer to elementary school music teacher.

“Music education just felt like the right place for me,” Fitzwater said. Raised by a folk-musician father and a special-education-teacher mother, Fitzwater said she had “the perfect combination of influences to get me where I am today.”

She has been teaching in Frederick County for seven years, working full-time at Oakdale Elementary for almost her entire tenure.

“We sing, move, dance and play instruments.” Fitzwater teaches kindergarten through fifth-grade general/vocal music classes about a variety of musical elements, integrating world music and other components. She also runs extra-curricular chorus and dance clubs at the school.

“I know that no matter what career changes lie ahead of me, I will always work in education,” Fitzwater said. Read the article here.
