Funds Go to Frankenmuth, Caro Schools

Kristin Weaver and Whitney Kilbourn of the Kristin Weaver Insurance Agency recently visited two schools to present teachers with awards for their classes.

Katherine Kay of Schall Elementary in Caro won a Classroom Makeover, which she’ll use to spruce up her classroom and make it more inviting and comfortable for students. Band teacher Eric Clauder of Frankenmuth High School won a conference award, which he’ll use to attend the Midwest Clinic 2016 music conference.


Eric returned from the conference with a report:

"During the conference I attended numerous sessions that directly apply to me and will positively impact my students. These sessions have me the opportunity to learn a variety of teaching strategies and allowed me to 'sharpen the saw' - I will be able to return to my classes with fresh ideas and improved perspective. 
"In addition to sessions, I attended several performances by musicians from across the country. These were high quality concerts that gave me new repertoire ideas, insight into other organizations' inter-workings and modeled top level musicality. I was also able to network with other musicians, educators and composers. Connecting with these people will provide me and my students the ability to strive for the highest level of musicality we can achieve."
