Welcome, Ms. Hancock!

We are fortunate enough to have another student teacher with us this Fall. Ms. Karen Hancock will be joining us in October after spending some time across town at Evans Middle School.


"Hello, my name is Karen Hancock and I am from Mesquite, TX. As the youngest of seven siblings, I love spending time with my huge family just as much as I love singing operatic and classical music. I am currently finishing up my degree in music education at Texas A&M University - Commerce. I am incredibly excited to have the opportunity to work and grow with the McKinney Boyd High School and Evans Middle School choirs this semester."
