 MUSICAL NOTES ABOUT Ms. Platt:

 My first years in Johnston County were spent teaching band, music & chorus at Corinth-Holder Elementary School before becoming a charter staff member here at Archer Lodge. 

I have been blessed to be entering my 33rd year of teaching music & one of my greatest pleasures is to have the opportunity to teach children to love & appreciate music as much as I do. This goal has been accomplished by  encouraging, promoting & allowing an explosion of the beautiful & talented gifts I’ve “extracted” from our children.

Welcome back & prepare yourselves for a journey to a new, enlightening, informative, entertaining & fun year.
