After graduating from Centenary College of Louisiana with her Bachelors in Vocal Music Education, Chrissy Williams began teaching elementary general music and choir in Conroe, TX. While working in Conroe, Chrissy studied and completed her Kodaly certification. Also, she started working on her Masters online through Kent State University.

After getting married, Chrissy and her husband moved to Austin where she taught high school choir and piano. While working in Austin, she led choirs to earn multiple division one ratings in U.I.L. Concert and Sight Reading. During those two years, she also completed her Masters in Music Education with a general education and choral emphasis.

In the fall of 2015 she joined the choral team at Leander High School, and she now enjoys teaching Choir and AP Music Theory.

Rob Saldaña was born and raised in Manila and moved to Leander in 2007, where his choral music experience started. A proud Leander High School graduate (Class of 2010) and choir alumna, he attended The University of Texas at San Antonio and earned a Bachelor's Degree in Music Education/Performance.

Starting in the Fall of 2015, Saldaña taught middle school choir in the San Antonio area for four years, leading multiple ensembles to earn Division I ratings and Sweepstakes during UIL Concert & Sight-Reading contests. An active professional member of the Opera San Antonio ensemble, he also sang in the opera chorus and performed supporting roles during that time.

Saldaña is thrilled to be back and join the choral team at Leander, this time, as Assistant Choir Director and IB Music Instructor.
