The Greta Berman Arbetter Kazoo School and my beautiful MARRIAGE! :)

Hello and welcome to the Professional Portfolio of Ashley Hall (formerly Ashley Squires)!

I would like to take a moment to update you on my professional (and personal) developments!

I got married on September 21st, 2013! My husband’s name is Jeremy Hall. He works in broadcast engineering and we share a love for music.

On September 3rd, 2013 I started a part-time position at the Greta Berman Arbetter Kazoo School located in Kalamazoo, Michigan. The Kazoo School is a private K-8 school. I teach general music on Tuesdays and Thursdays.

I am still taking substitute teaching assignments on Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays. I am also still teaching private music lessons through Thompson Tutoring, LLC of Portage. I’ve also continued another year directing the East Leroy Elementary Choir of Athens, Michigan.

Thank you to everyone who has helped me along the way to my first teaching assignment. I am so happy to working with children in the field I love!

Till next time!
