Kate Barnes Talo
Position: Lower School Support, Music Teacher
Originally from New York State, I grew up one town over from the birthplace of Lucille Ball. I lived in Virginia for 4 years before landing here in Michigan in 2009. I have been teaching or caring for children in a variety of capacities for most of my adult life. After earning my Bachelors of Music in Vocal Education, I worked as an assistant in preschools, a music teacher in public and private schools, an aide in group homes, a nanny and as a private music instructor in a music store and in my own studio. This is my first year at Ann Arbor Academy! For relaxation I enjoy kayaking, watching tv/movies and visiting small towns with my husband, the occasional sci-fi book, gardening, and watching our adorable gerbil, Buster. The thing that shapes my life most is my relationship with God and my church family.
