Degrees and Certifications:
Mr. Christopher Kowalski
Welcome to Fox Chase Elementary School music.
I attended North Central College, in Naperville, Ill., and earned a bachelor’s degree in vocal music education. Though I am certified to teach kindergarten through high school, my heart truly lies at the elementary level, where I have been teaching for the past 10 years. At North Central, I participated in several vocal and instrumental ensembles and studied voice, guitar, and piano. I also participated in both the Illinois Music Educators Conference and Music Educators National Conference. In 2008, I received a master’s degree in educational leadership from the University of St. Francis, in Joliet, Ill. My time at St. Francis allowed me the opportunity to look at the school environment from a wider perspective and provided valuable experience.
I am so grateful to be teaching music at Fox Chase. My goal is to have music to be a part of every students' life, whether they play an instrument in band, sing in the choir, or enjoy going to a concert. I had great and inspiring instructors growing up, and I am thrilled to be given the opportunity to provide musical encouragement to all of our students.
