ABOUT MRS. KILZER
WHY I BECAME A TEACHER
I have always wanted to teach music. My childhood music teachers made a huge impact on me, and I wanted to be to other kids what those wonderful teachers had been to me.
I started my “formal” music education at age 4, with piano lessons. I am terrible at the piano. Fortunately, I discovered bowed strings, as well as singing. These things lit the fire in my belly.
I pursued them relentlessly through my public school years.
University of Oklahoma, where I studied viola performance under Wayne Crouse, earning a Bachelor of Music degree.
I started teaching privately when I was 19 (so, like, a LONG time ago).
I have taught elementary orchestra, sung with the Portland Symphonic Choir, homeschooled my three children for about six years.
Taking part in Zion’s wonderful Home/School Partnership, and lived the musician/mom life for some time now.
FAMILY AND OUTSIDE INTERESTS
Aside from being a musician, my whole family participates quite extensively in taekwondo. We also have a borderline unreasonable number of pets.
WHY I TEACH AT ZION
I teach at Zion because it is a wonderful opportunity to share God's gift of music with a group of incredible kids. It also allows my homeschooled kids to have a great experience “doing school” in a wonderful environment, with loving teachers and really good friends. And because they let me teach preschoolers to sing in Latin.
