This year we welcome back Mrs. Shelly Reed, and a new music teacher, Miss Stephanie Frakes. Mrs. Reed has been teaching music in AISD for 8 years and is and adjunct professor of voice at ACU. Ms. Frakes earned her Bachelor of Music from Abilene Christian University and graduated in May 2012 with highest honors. She is thrilled to spend her first year of teaching with the fabulous Austin Raiders!
