Kateri Tumminello

Kateri considered large universities for studying music education but decided North Central was a perfect fit. “I loved the idea of a well-rounded, liberal arts education. Here you have the ability to gain leadership skills and study outside your major.”

In her music studies, Kateri pursued both choral and instrumental education and participated in choral, instrumental and jazz ensembles. “North Central is a place where I could dabble in an area like vocal jazz in addition to classical vocal. Gaining a wide variety of experiences prepares you better because you never know what you might end up doing in a school setting.”

In preparing for her student-teaching assignment at a middle and high school, Kateri says the expertise of North Central’s faculty and close mentoring helped ready her for the classroom. “They are really great educators themselves, so they’re good role models as you prepare to go into that field.”
