Get to Know Mrs. K
Hello 2nd Grade Families!
I'm Emily Focht Kuersten! I have been teaching music at LUSD since 2014 but have been teaching a variety of subjects since 2010. I have a bachelor's degree in music instruction with minors in German and physics and have teaching credentials in music, general science, and multiple subjects. I will complete my Master of Music in Music Education in the summer of 2019.
Before coming to Loomis, I substitute taught in Laguna Beach, Ca, recieved awards for my teaching of the Y.E.S. Properties of Motion Program at Disneyland Park, and taught English as a Second Language for the Disney Company in Shanghai, China (fun fact: that's the Shanghai skyline in the tile of this page!). In the past two years I have had the honor of performing in a large ensemble with trumpet legend Doc Severinsen as well as the internationally renowned Canadian Brass. Next June, I will be traveling to Normandy to perform for the 75th anniversary of D-Day.
The last few years I have taught primarily at Loomis Grammar and H. Clarke Powers, but I am excited to be a part of Penryn, Ophir STEAM, Placer and Franklin! This year I'll be teaching 2nd Grade Music and 6-8th grade Band.
Parents are always welcome in my classroom - we'd love to have you come play with us! Contact me if you'd like to visit or have any other questions: firstname.lastname@example.org.
