BME Vocal Emphasis - Wartburg College (2014)
Mr. Christopher Kurt is in his fifth year of teaching and his second year of teaching 6-8 Vocal Music at Liberty Memorial Central Middle School in Lawrence, KS. His first three years were spent teaching 6-8 General & Choral Music at Aldo Leopold Middle School in Burlington, IA. He graduated from Wartburg College in May 2014 with a Bachelor’s Degree in Music Education with a Vocal Emphasis. In his first three years of teaching, Mr. Kurt was nominated three times for The Hawkeye’s “Teacher of The Year” Award. In the Fall of 2016, he was a presenter at the Iowa Technology & Educators Connection Conference. He has been a guest on the "Choir Ninja" podcast by Ryan Guth twice. He presented at the Iowa Music Educators Association Conference in November of 2017.
Mr. Kurt is passionate about music, fantasy football, warm weather, human rights, froyo, and Netflix. He has watched the series “How I Met Your Mother” ten times through within the past five years and states his vast knowledge of the show is one of his greatest attributes. At school, he wears fun and unique socks each day that often match his brightly colored shirts. Though he has never gotten past the first round, he has tried out for American Idol three times and The Voice once, but did see Ryan Seacrest at one of the auditions and screamed like a 12-year old at a Justin Bieber concert, so that counts for something, right?
