Degrees and Certifications:

Ms. Fabon-Gifford

Hello and welcome to my page!

I am Ms. Fabon and I teach middle school chorus at Virtual Academy. It is my third year teaching at Virtual Academy. 

I was born in Saipan, Marianna's Island, grew up in Philippines, and migrated to the U.S. when I was only 8 years old. My native language is Tagalog, making English my second language. I speak Tagalog fluently to this day. I was an ESL student when I first started my education in the U.S. and wouldn't know what to do if I didn't have an amazing ESL teacher. 

My music career started in elementary school when I joined choir in 5th grade and continued throughout middle and high school when I joined band to play the flute. I was extremely involved and participated in Honor Bands and was a drum major in high school for 2 years. I pursued music in college and got my Bachelors of Music from Mars Hill University and my Master's in Music from The University of New Mexico. 

I love education and learning new things because it has provided so many opportunities for me in life. It is something that I am passionate about and like to share with my students because education IS the key in life and is a privilege. 

In my free time I enjoy shopping, watching Korean dramas, trying new coffee shops, cooking, and traveling.
