Amy Kate Hilsman lives in Holland, MI with her husband and five daughters. She has educated her children at home for thirteen years. This year their home school is comprised of students in pre-K, 4th, 6th, 9th, and 11th grades!
Amy Kate has a Bachelor of Music degree, cum laude, from St. Olaf College. She transferred to St. Olaf College from the University of Michigan due to her love of choral music and an interest she developed in the liberal arts while a high school student at the Interlochen Arts Academy. At St. Olaf, she completed her music degree while continuing her studies in history and literature. Upon graduation, she studied toward her Montessori certification at St. Catherine's and has since taken a handful of Suzuki teacher training courses as well as post-graduate courses in Orff and Dalcroze.
In addition to home-schooling, Amy Kate has worked in Montessori schools, directed graded children's choir programs, and runs an active music studio out of her home. In her free time she enjoys wearing her amateur historian hat and indulging in her love of biography.
