New Devil Profile: Ms. Eshelman

BHS has quite a few new teachers and staff members this year. What better way to get to know them than to learn about what music they love? We asked each new faculty and staff member a series of questions to find out a little bit about who they are and what they listen to. We’ll be posting them throughout the next few weeks. Our first New Devil Profile highlights one of the new members of the English Department: Sarah Eshelman.

What are you currently listening to? Usually whatever is on 88.9 WERS, but generally I enjoy listening to my Spotify playlists, like “80sMusic” (featuring Billy Idol, David Bowie, and Cyndi Lauper) or “GirlMusic” (female-led acts like Robyn, Chvrches, and LP).

What are you always listening go? The entire Hamilton musical soundtrack and Mumford & Sons (namely the first two albums: Sigh No More and Babel). I also will always have a soft spot for RelientK, a band I loved way back in middle school.

What are your psych-up songs?  “My Shot” (Hamilton), “Tightrope” (Janelle Monae), or “Little Secrets” (Passion Pit).

What are your cool-down songs? I don’t have too many cool-down songs, specifically; I usually just put on the Classical Music station.

What is your relationship with music? What do you love about it? I love how it both energizes and focuses me – I usually put it on if I need to focus on something like cleaning, cooking, or grading. Music is always with. I tend to hum random songs or otherwise have a song stuck in my head at all times.

What’s your theme song? No idea! Maybe “Drumming Song” by Florence + The Machine.

Thanks for sharing, Ms. Eshelman. Now, get pscyhed up because we’re making our next morning music song “Tightrope” by Janelle Monae!
