About Mrs. Gerstmyer:
I am so excited to be a part of the Saint Margaret community! This is my seventh year of teaching. I have taught music both in the public school and private school setting from Pre-K to eighth grade.
I am a native of the Hereford Zone in Northern Baltimore County. I currently live in Parkville with my husband, daugther, dog, and two cats.
All the students from Pre-K 4 to sixth grade come to music once a week. Students in third through fifth grade have the opportunity to join the Chorus which meets on Tuesdays after school from 3:00-4:00 pm.
In music class, we share in our love of making beautiful music together. We do this through singing, playing instruments, reading music on the staff and learning about music through the ages. We also learn about the instruments, both in our classroom and those that are played in the orchestra and band.
I also run the Creative Arts Club and Music Ministry at the Middle School. The Creative Arts Club meets on Thursday after school from 3:00-4:30 pm and we will be performing two shows this year. If you aren't a part of the club, make sure you come to our performances! They are going to be amazing! Music Ministry has enthusiastic singers that help fill the church with our hymns and psalms. They are very dedicated to sharing their beautiful voices at our weekly school masses. We can always have more voices join us if you find you would like to be a part of this wonderful group!
