About the Teacher


meframed
Hi! My I’m Karisa Cloutier and I’ve been teaching music in Broward County Since 1998!

I graduated with a Bachelors of Music Education from Stetson University in 1998.  My journey in teaching started out in Middle School, and after the birth of my daughter, I decided to give elementary school a try, and I’ve never looked back!

I’ve been the Music at Pinewood Elementary school since 2002.  I have had so much fun teaching the students there, and every year is an adventure!  My favorite thing about teaching music is getting to see a side of children that many people don’t get to see everyday.

I am happily married and live with my husband of 15 years, teenage daughter, and our 85 pound dog.

A few more facts about me:

Favorite Food Onion Bagel with Strawberry Cream Cheese
Favorite Sports Team Boston Celtics
Hobbies Making decorative bows for weddings, baby showers and parties
Favorite Movie The Avengers and Captain America Winter Soldier
Favorite Music Everything!
