My name is Kristen Bartholomew and I am a general music teacher at Cardinal Elementary. I started with Arlington Public Schools in the fall of 2014 after graduating from Miami University (Ohio) with a Bachelor of Music in Music Education with a focus in percussion. Being with Cardinal community, I have served as a PTA staff liaison, Educational Theatre Company Staff liaison, and Lead Teacher for specialists. I am co-director of our 4th and 5th grade choruses, as well as director of the after school percussion ensemble. I am also the percussion instructor for the Wakefield High School Marching Band in Arlington.
