Getting to Know Your Kindermusik Educators: Miss Erin

Meet Miss Erin

Miss Erin is the newest addition to the InJoy Music staff.  She became a licensed Kindermusik Educator and began teaching classes this summer.  Miss Erin is a board-certified music therapist whose work included special training in therapy with infants in the neonatal unit at Children’s Mercy Hospital. She is the fifth educator in our Getting to Know Your Kindermusik Educators in 10 Questions feature.

1.   Where were you born?
I was born in Dallas, Texas at Baylor Medical Center – a true Big XII girl, from birth!

2.   Do you have siblings?
I do not. I am an only child; however, I got my first dog – as promised! – on my 10th birthday.

3.   What was your favorite toy as a child? 
Hrmm. . . I think it’s a tie: I was OBSESSED with dinosaurs around kindergarten, and had a full set of carnivores and herbivores and even a velociraptor that made screeching noises! But!! I was also serious fan of dress-up, and loved to play “Spice Girls” with my best friend in platformed shoes and crazy get-ups. Of COURSE there was singing!!!

4.   Do you have children?
I do not.

5.   When you were little, what did you want to be when you grew up?
First I wanted to work at McDonald’s, then I though it would be nice to be a veterinarian, and I still want to be a pediatrician!

6.   Sumer or winter?
Summer – just not another like this past one. I do need moisture, and not my own sweat.

7.   Would you bungee jump?
Probably not – I already had one life-altering accident and understand that thrill-seeking is fun, but life is more precious.

8.   What’s the next planned event you’re looking forward to in your life?
KU Homecoming 2012 – ROCK CHALK on Saturday, October 27th, at Memorial Stadium in Lawrence, Kansas!!

9.   What’s the worst/most embarrassing CD/Album you’ve ever owned?  Do you still own it?  Still listen?
Uhm, I don’t think I still have it, but I owned AQUA’s original album with “Barbie Girl” and “Candy Man” and other oh-so-catchy tunes.

10. What is your favorite thing about Kindermusik? 
Seeing the joy and listening to the laughter and singing of the children and families I lead in music exploration.

Miss Erin is looking forward to the start of classes this week!  Haven’t signed up for a class yet?  There is still time!  Visit our website to view the schedule and enroll TODAY!
