While studying at UNCP, Mrs. Malone competed at the 2010 Raleigh Area Flute Association's "Annual Review and Contest," where she won her division and performed on the Review and Contest recital. In the Spring of 2012, she was a winner of the annual UNCP Concerto Competition, where she performed the Andante and Rondo by Franz Doppler. Mrs. Malone was also a collegiate member of the National Association for Music Education and a member of the Delta Theta Chapter of Sigma Sigma Sigma at UNCP.
Mrs. Malone is in her fourth year of teaching elementary music and she finds great joy in teaching all children the joys of music. She believes that music is a fundamental right and that all students should be exposed to a quality music education. She strives to spread this love of music to all her students by allowing them to perform various activities in her classroom that also help build strong cross curricular foundations to other subject areas, including math and science. It is her hope that all students entering her classroom, leave with a greater appreciation for music. She is currently a member of the GMEA Chapter of the National Association for Music Education.
When Mrs. Malone is not teaching, she enjoys playing in various ensembles, reading a good book and spending time with her family, including her husband and two sons, Gene and Killian.
