Hello families! I am the full time music teacher at SPE. This will be my third year at SPE and fifth year as an educator.  My goal as a music educator is to encourage students to experience and appreciate music. In my music classroom, the students will have an opportunity to experience music through moving, dancing, singing, playing instruments, creating, improvising, reading music, and composing.  I went to UMSL and received a bachelors of Music Education in December 2011.  I have completed Level 1 and Level 2 of Orff Schulwerk and will be taking Level 3 next summer. I greatly look forward to working with your students in the music classroom!


My name is Kathleen Hoormann and I am a recent graduate of the University of Missouri- St. Louis where I studied Music Education. My performance studies focused on several types of percussion including world drumming specific to West Africa. I have performed at several venues in and around St. Louis including the Muny and the VP Parade. My professional experience performing in clinics includes the Missouri Music Educators Conference and the Percussive Arts Society International Convention. I am excited to start my teaching career in the Fort Zumwalt School District!
