Ralene Jacobson
Vocal Music
Franklin Elementary School
Baltimore County


Music and teaching children are the two passions of Ralene Jacobson’s life, which is why she has excelled for 29 years as a vocal music teacher in Baltimore County Public Schools, with the last 14 years at Franklin Elementary School in Reisterstown. With degrees from the Peabody Preparatory of Music, the University of Maryland College Park, and Towson University, she helped to write Baltimore County’s elementary vocal music curriculum guide. Coming from a family of educators, she is a strong advocate for the arts in education and believes that music touches and enhances learning across the curriculum. She lives the words of a prominent poster in her classroom: “Every Voice Counts.”
