My name is Ms. Shook and this is my 7th year at H.M. Arndt Middle School! I am a product of the Catawba County School system and a graduate from Wingate University with my k-12 certification in Music Education. I was awarded "Outstanding Beginning Middle Grades Teacher of the Year" for Catawba County Schools in 2013. I also have a part time job with St. Alban's Episcopal Church serving as assistant music director as well as teaching private piano lessons. I also serve as the co-chair for the Western NC Performance Adjudications that take place annually across the state. I love my job and I love teaching middle school chorus! In my free time I enjoy: hiking, going to the mountains, painting, being in nature, hanging with my dog, astrology, tarot cards, reading, listening to vinyl, and cooking! I'm so excited to serve as the BLT (Building Leadership Team) chair for the next two years (2019-2021). I also am the leader of our during school tribe time "Meditation Club" where I teach moments of mindfulness to ease the body, mind, and spirit.
