About the educator
Growing up in Rockford, IL, Kristy loved to play “School,” teaching her two sisters, one brother, and the neighborhood friends! She began playing the piano and singing in choirs.
Kristy earned a Bachelor in Secondary Education and Mathematics from the University of Iowa. For 9 years, she taught middle school math. She went on to earn her Master’s in Education Administration and serve as the Principal of Saint Susanna School for 4 years. Kristy has volunteered as a Kindergarten parent aide, and also with her daughter’s youth musical theater programs.
As a mom of four kids, aged 15, 13, 11, and 2, Kristy first discovered Kindermusik when she enrolled her first baby in a class. She particularly found it reassuring to connect with other first-time moms. Recently, she brought her fourth baby to Kindermusik, and saw her daughter’s pure delight during class. Now as a Licensed Kindermusk Educator, Kristy invites you to come and experience the same joys she felt as a Kindermusik parent.
