Welcome to Mrs. Deckerd's Music Classes!

I am so excited to be teaching for my eighth  year here at Lake! You can find me at Lake, Hartville, and Uniontown Elementary this year.

I had a wonderful summer this year as Mr. Deckerd and I welcome our first child, Carolyn into the family. She is such a blessing to our family and I am so happy to join the "mommy club!"
I look forward to all of the opportunities this year has to bring. My goal is to use music to foster a love of the arts in my students, making them more confident with themselves and excited about learning. I hope to help them make connections with music outside of my classroom, teach them the basic skills, and also have fun learning!

A little about me:
I graduated from Southeast High School in 2003, Mount Union College in 2007 with a Bachelors in Music Education, and Walden University in 2011 with a Masters in Curriculum, Instruction, and Assessment.

When I'm not at school you can find me taking pictures, walking or jogging, watching movies, singing, eating ice cream, or spending time with my family and friends.
My favorite genres of music are Country and Christian. Some of my favorite performing groups are Toby Mac, Casting Crowns, Rascal Flatts, Lady Antebellum, Luke Bryan, The Piano Guys, and Straight No Chaser.
