Mrs. Calvert has been teaching in Upper Arlington for 7 years and has taught in almost every school in the district! Before UA, she taught in Chicago and worked with middle school orchestra students. Mrs. Calvert loves to play her violin, and often plays for weddings, special events, and sometimes even the Broadway shows that come to town. One other cool fact? She graduated from Upper Arlington High School way back in 1987, so she is a Golden Bear too!
