David Babb, Middle/High School, Teacher


When I was in high school, my band director made a lasting impression on me. I decided that I wanted to be a role model and mentor for young adults like my band director was for me through music. Participating in the education program at Appalachian State and working with students of all ages and interests in the surrounding area confirmed that teaching is my passion.

I am a recent graduate with a B.A. in K-12 Music Education and a minor in Political Science from Appalachian State University. This will be my first year of full time teaching.

I have a golden retriever- cocker spaniel mix named Charlie... that's it for now!

I like to spend my free time playing in community bands, traveling and exploring hiking trails, and spending time with my family and friends.

Be somebody who makes everybody feel like a somebody.
