Meet the Director

Christine Kaufman

I am in my eighth year of teaching.  I began my teaching career in 2001 at Benton Community as the Assistant Vocal Music Director, teaching 7-12 vocal music.  In 2005, I joined the Western Dubuque family as the vocal music director.

I am originally from Fulton, Illinois and attended the University of Iowa.  I graduated from Iowa in 2001 with a Bachelor of Music degree in Vocal Music Performance.  In 2005, I returned to my Hawkeye family to obtain a Master's Degree in School Counseling, which I'm still working on.

I love the outdoors and enjoy kayaking and climbing/rappelling with my fiance.  I am turning in my single status to officially become Mrs. Tipple when I marry Tim on July 5.  We will reside in Dubuque with our cat, Cassidy and golden retriever, Jack.
