Mrs. Cindy Dempsey-Vocal Arts Teacher

It is my privilege to be part of the faculty at Caldwell Arts Academy as the Vocal Arts teacher for Kindergarten through fourth grade.    I have had the pleasure of teaching music to students of all ages for over 25 years.  In 2008, my passion for music and my desire to make a greater difference in the lives of children lead me to teach in Tyler ISD.  My mission as an educator is to inspire, educate, and nurture my students with rich musical experiences, practical musicianship, and fundamental music knowledge and appreciation.  It is  my desire to teach my students to create beautiful music and to strengthen the creative capacity of our community.
