Mrs. May is thrilled to be teaching her second year at St. Patricia School. She previously taught general music for several years at Deerfield Public Schools. Mrs. May has a Bachelors and Masters degree in music education from the University of Illinois in Urbana-Champaign. She participated in both the Women’s Glee Club and Concert Choirs while at U of I, and has played the piano since she was a child. She also was an accompanist for the Children’s Choir at St. Isidore Parish where she grew up. Her philosophy is to instill a love and appreciation of music in her students, and to discover how significant music is to our human nature.
Besides a love of music, Mrs. May loves watching football, hockey, and baseball. She is a big Cubs and Blackhawks fan. She also enjoys being outside, playing the piano, and spending time with friends and family. When she’s not teaching, Mrs. May loves being a mom to her young daughter and son.
