About the Teacher

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 18 years, teenage daughter, and our 85 pound dog.
