Looking for a change in 2010? Check out this story.

It really doesn't seem like that long ago that Rachel Roberts was a little girl in my Kindermusik class. Before I was an employee owner at Kindermusik, I taught Kindermusik classes at the Cultural Arts Center in Greensboro, NC. She's pictured in the white sweater, and that's me in the pink jacket. You can imagine my surprise and delight when I found out Rachel is currently in a Fundamentals Learning Group! Kindermusik Fundamentals is the training course all Kindermusik eduators take. Rachel grew up (pictured in the blue dress), and things have come around full circle!

Here’s how Rachel introduced herself to her Kindermusik Fundamentals training group:

My name is Rachel Roberts and I am currently in my last semester of college at Mars Hill College in the mountains of North Carolina, finishing a B.A. of Music degree. I hope to graduate in December and find a Kindermusik office to work with soon after that.

I have always loved working with children. I babysat regularly throughout middle and high school and for the past 2 summers, I worked as a director for KidShine Inc., a company that sends teams around the U.S. teaching children’s musicals through the day camp venue. There I was able to take on a teaching role, as well as learn business skills. I was drawn to the idea of Kindermusik because I participated in the classes as a child, and was reminded of it when I was looking for potential career opportunities. It is a perfect blend of things I'm passionate about: children & music!

I hope to be the kind of teacher who can connect with both children and parents, and pass my love for music along to others.

It really feels good to be able to pass on the torch. This is what it's really all about.
