My name is Courtney Karns and I am the new music teacher at Providence Elementary. I am excited to make music with your child this year! I was born and raised in North Pole, Alaska, got my Bachelors of Music Education from the University of Wisconsin – Eau Claire, and earned my Kodaly certification from the Indiana University Summer Kodaly Institute. I taught music for three years at CSA-Lincoln Elementary, a magnet school for project based learning in Columbus, Indiana. I also taught music for four years in Denton at Ginnings Elementary. I have a wonderful family with my husband Keith and our one year old named Jack. He is already a little musician!
