Ms. Kristi Liou

Hi!  My name is Ms. Liou and I'm the new music teacher at Brent Elementary.  I am excited to be part of the Lobo FamiLE!  Prior to coming to Brent, I taught band and piano since 2006 at Kailua Intermediate School, Jarrett Middle School, and Kawananokoa Middle School in Hawai'i.  I hold a Bachelor's of Education degree and a Master's of Arts in Music Education degree from the University of Hawai`i Manoa (UH).  While at UH, I was privileged to study clarinet under the tutelage of Mr. Henry Miyamura.  From 2009-2013, I chaired the O`ahu Band Directors' Association (OBDA) Middle School Honor Band.  I served as the OBDA Treasurer from 2014-2016 and the OBDA Secretary from 2017-2019.  I was fortunate to have the opportunity to guest conduct the Maui Intermediate Select Band, the UH Summer Band, and the OBDA Middle School and Beginning Honor Bands, as well as adjudicate the Kaua'i Solo and Ensemble Festival.  In 2013, I was awarded as Teacher of Year for Kailua Intermediate School and in 2016, I was awarded the Windward District Teacher of the Year in 2016.  The American School Band Directors Association inducted me into the Hawai'i Chapter in 2020.

Besides playing musical instruments, I love rock climbing, reading, and going to the beach.  My dog, Oshie, looks like a mini Lobo and enjoys cuddles from everyone.  Inspring students to love music, equipping them with the knowledge and tools to play and sing any piece, and teaching them to develop socially and personally has always been my passion.  I look forward to bringing this passion to Little Elm to help your children grow individually and as a group!
