    Teaching Schedule





    My name is Katie Elshire and I am am starting my 28th year in education and my 8th year of teaching Choir and General Music/Appreciation at Pionner Middle School. I hold a Bachelor’s degree in Secondary Choral Education from Pacific Lutheran University and a Masters in Instructional Technology from City University. 

    I hold holds professional memberships in the American Choral Directors Association and the National Association for Music Education. 

    For the past 17 years, I have served on the Board of the Mountain Region Music Education Association where I'm serving as the acting Treasurer. For the past 12 years I have sang Alto 2 in the Symphony Tacoma Voices.

    In 2018, I was humbled and honored to receive the “Middle Level Educator of the Year” award by the Washington Music Educators Association.

    In my free time, I enjoy spending time chillin', floating on a lake in warmer weather, playing Pokemon Go with my husband, spending time with my daughter and playing with our corgi puppy.
