Miss Knefelkamp

Welcome to Music!


Hi, I am Miss Knefelkamp!

I am so excited to share the gift of music with our students! I will be at the Bourbonnais site, as well as grades 7 and 8 at the Kankakee Site, and new this year working with our High School choral ensemble.


I love to teach! I knew from a very young age that music was a passion of mine, and as I continued in that area of my life, I knew I wanted to share that passion with students.


I teach Pre-K through 8th grade music. I received my Bachelor of Arts Degree at Olivet Nazarene University. My degree was in the field of music education, with a vocal emphasis. I love to sing and act, and am very involved in local community theatre. Teaching students a love of music is my passion, and I can not wait to share that with the students of Bishop Macnamara Catholic School!
