About Mrs. Peot
Music, in school, at home, and at church was always an important part of Christine’s life. While growing up, a favorite pastime was playing school. She still remembers teaching her imaginary class how to sing We Built this City by Starship. She also treated imaginary patients in the makeshift hospital she created in the upstairs of her grandparent’s home. Many ailments were quickly cured by a little song and dance routine. As she grew, her desire to perform became stronger. At age 12, she started a youth choir at her church. During middle school, the clarinet entered the picture but by high school vocal music reigned. Throughout high school and college Christine performed in many musical productions. During that time, she was also blessed to gain directing and costume design experience. Though performing was a joy and a thrill, teaching became a passion. While in college at The University of Wisconsin-Green Bay, Christine taught vocal music lessons and gained valuable knowledge that would prepare her for her career as a music educator. She has been teaching choral music at De Pere Middle School in De Pere, Wisconsin since 2001. Prior to De Pere, Christine taught music at St John the Baptist School in Howard, Wisconsin. In her free time, Christine enjoys the outdoors, running, and performing music with her family. Her husband Paul is an accomplished musician and their sons Ian and Elliott also play and sing.
