Degrees and Certifications:
I’m Christian Wisner and I this is my 10th year of teaching music at Cleaveland and my 17th year teaching in WPS. I teach PreK – 5th grade music. My goal is to prepare my students for their next step of education, Middle School, whether they continue with music or move on to other interests. CTM’s 4th and 5th grade Honor Choir – Singing Tigers, has become a staple in the music program for 9 years. The group has performed at various venues around Wichita and they were selected to perform at the Kansas Music Educators Association Conference. Even though the choir is tabled this year due to Covid-19 restrictions, we plan to again continue the tradition next year. Along with the CTM Honor Choir, many students are selected to attend and perform at other various Honor Choirs around the city, South Central District of Kansas, and the Kansas Elementary State Choir. It has been an honor to have students represent Cleaveland at all these performances.
At this time, I am currently the Chair person for the South Central Kansas Music Educators Elementary Honor Choir. As this term wraps up, I will take up the Kanas Music Educators Association Elementary State Choir Chair position for two years starting March 2021. I have directed the 4th and 5th grade WPS Southwest District Choir twice. I hope to continue to work and direct all these voices as well as future voices as they come.
