Welcome to Kathy Kossmann's page!__________________________________________________________________________I grew up in Washington, MO and attended Mizzou for 7 years, receiving my B.S. Ed. and M.Ed. in Music Education. Upon graduation I worked as a string specialist in a part-time capacity for the Columbia Public School district for many years. Since 2000 I have worked as a full-time orchestra teacher teaching elementary, middle and high school level classes. With the growth of the string program over the years I am thrilled to begin my 11th year of teaching orchestra classes exclusively at Gentry and my 36th year overall! My hobbies include reading, crocheting and various other needle crafts, exploring my ancestry and the most important one of all--spoiling my grandson!
