Mrs. Sarah Shifrin

I have been teaching music in Alabama since 2012. I am very happy to be the choir director at Hartselle Junior High School and Hartselle Intermediate School. I am a graduate of Texas Tech University with a degree in Music Education. I grew up in a family of 6. My dad was in the Air Force so we lived in a lot of different places (overseas and stateside) before finding a home in Texas.

After marrying my husband Calan, we moved to Huntsville in 2010 when he was hired to work as an engineer at Redstone Arsenal. We have three beautiful children Claire, Greyson, and Weston. We live with our very loyal (and vocal!) dog Darla. 

Outside of HJHS and HIS, I sing with the Huntsville Master Chorale.  

I enjoy spending time with my family, singing, reading, and cooking.
