Mrs. Kristin McGinnis

There is not a specific moment in time when I can say that my love of music began. It has always been a part of me, whether it was singing along with the radio in our family's mini-van, dancing to music in the kitchen, excitedly starting piano lessons at the age of 9, singing in numerous choirs, or accompanying in church services.

It has given me great joy to see the strong and influential role that music plays within our home even now.  All six of us love to listen to all different styles of music, including music from Latin America which we were introduced to while living in Santiago, Chile from 2006-2008.
