About Claire Strachan

Hello Parents, Students, Faculty, and Friends!

My name is Claire Strachan and this is my fourth year teaching music at McDermott Elementary! 

I was born in Michigan but I have spent most of my life in Minnesota, which is where I developed my love of music.

I graduated from Michigan State University with a degree in Music Education in May of 2012.  I received my ESL certification through Kansas State University and am currently working on my Master's degree in music education at Michigan State University. 

When I am not teaching, I enjoy watching sports, reading, and spending time with family and friends.  I am a HUGE Spartan fan and love the Spartan Football team!  I also am a big Detroit Red Wings fan and a Detroit Tiger Fan. 

I am looking forward to a wonderful year at McDermott filled with fun and exciting musical things including the Christmas Program, singing in the Liberal community, a second grade program, and a Third Grade Recorder Program!  I will keep you all posted on what is new, exciting, and what is going on in the music classroom through this website.  Thank you!
