Ms. Heidi Kosak
I'm so happy to be teaching music at Purdy School. As of this year, I have been at Purdy for 11 years and teaching music a total of 30 years! It doesn't seem possible. When I first started, I couldn't imagine that I would be doing any one thing for 30 years, and here I am--and still loving it.
I was born in Texas a long time ago. My dad was a military man, so we moved all over the world. I still have a great love and respect for people of all different cultures. I share this with my students because music provides us with so many opportunities to become aware of the world around us.
I have 2 step children who have given me 3 grandsons. I also have a grown son who travels around the world for his work. I try to visit him where ever he happens to be each summer.
I have been singing for as long as I can remember. I turned this into a career by earning a bachelor's degree in Music Therapy. Expanding my horizons, I received a Master's in Music Education and another in Vocal Pedagogy. (What can I say; I like school!) I taught in Texas before moving to Wisconsin.
I hope we have many more great years together here at Purdy!
