Hi, my name is Charmane Kolmos and I am the music director at Traver School. I have two children, Christian, who is 25 and Jessen, who is 20. My husband passed away in 2012 which was a very difficult life experience for my family to go through. My family, here at Traver School, was very supportive and helped us cope with the loss. That is how I think about the teachers and staff of Traver School, they are family. I have been very blessed to have another man come into my life and share new experiences with me and my boys. Dan is truly a blessing and I am happy to share my life with him.
I have known since 4th grade that I have wanted to be a music teacher. I had very supportive music and band teachers in elementary, junior high and high school who encouraged me to always strive and do my best. Their encouragement inspired me to want to be a music teacher. I went to college at Concordia University Chicago and after graduation taught at Rockford Lutheran High School. After getting married in 1989, I did a long term subbing job in the area and then started teaching band here at Traver in the fall of 1993. After a few years, I was asked if I would also do the General music and gladly agreed to do so. I am now in my 27th year at Traver School. I strive to instill the joy of music in my students and want them to carry that joy with them for the rest of their lives.
