Congratulations to AHHS Assistant Band Director Amber Childress!
Spotlight on Excellence November 2017


“Amber is an amazing teacher, leader, and colleague.  We both started working at Alamo Heights at the same time, and I could not ask for a better partner.  She works incredibly hard and teaches students in all grade-levels of the program every day.  Through her work and dedication, she has helped to improve all parts of the band program. Amber has the respect and love of the students, and she has earned the confidence and trust of the band parents.  She not only teaches each student, but also constantly inspires and challenges me to be a better teacher.  I am grateful to have such a strong leader, teacher, and friend as Amber on our band staff.”

David Stephenson
AHHS Band Director

"Amber Childress did a great job preparing the pit orchestra for The Music Man, despite a number of challenges.  She took over the pit from David Stephenson, coordinated with Collin Meinecke to combine the band and orchestra kids into a cohesive unit, managed the demands of working with Angus McLeod and myself…and the kids just love her.  All the while managing the outside stress of buying a home with her new husband and moving into it the weekend before the show.  She has handled herself in every moment with professionalism and grace, while putting out a top-quality product.”
