Welcome to the Arts

Hello! My name is Gregory McCord and I will be your child(ren)’s Art, Technology, and Music teacher for this school year!  I would  like to start by introducing myself.

I am originally from Nashville, TN and currently live in Scottsville, KY (just over the TN-KY stateline).  I graduated from Western Kentucky University in 2008 with a Bachelor of Arts degree in Music and again in 2011 with a Bachelor of Music Education degree in Vocal Music.  I have previously taught Choir and General Music in Kentucky and look forward to continuing teaching the Arts here at St. John Vianney.  I have been happily married for 6 years and have 2 children, Taina age 13 and Austin age 7, and 4 dogs.

Again, I look forward to meeting everyone and having a fun filled year!

Fabric Expanding File

There have been a few questions from parents about the best place to purchase the fabric expanding file. After looking at a few stores I have found Walmart (in store) has the best quality expanding file. As an added bonus these were also the cheapest! Don’t hesitate to email me ( with any questions!
