Mrs. Heywood


    This is my 7th year teaching at JME and my 18th year in CCSD.  I teach music to grades K - 5, Arts Infusion and Chorus.

    I earned my B.M. in Flute Performance at North Texas State University and my M.Ed. in Creative Arts at Lesley University in Cambridge, MA.  I earned my National Board Certification in Music in 2009.

    My husband, David, is also a musician and teaches at the College of Charleston.  I have twin sons who are 25 years old and am blessed that they both have careers in the area!  Our two cats, Phantom and Jigsaw, are very entertaining.  We love all there is to do in the Lowcountry.  Our favorite activities together are water sports and "Movie Night".

    My aim is to increase my students' love for music, whether in singing, playing instruments, moving or simply listening.  I especially enjoy teaching them connections between music and other areas of their education and lives.
