Mrs. Melissa Pycke
Hello! My name is Melissa Pycke and I am the music teacher at McCulloch Elementary in Republic. I have been in education for six years and this year will make year five at McCulloch. Prior to teaching in Republic, I taught sixth through twelth grade music in Spokane where I had two choir classes, one musical theatre class, and a general music class. I have a Bachelor's Degree in Music Education and I am currently working towards a Master's Degree in Music Education at Missouri State University. I currently reside in the Republic area with my husband and son, Henry. I teach beginning piano lessons and I also accompany the Sixth Grade Singers at the middle school during the year as well as competitions.
Teaching elementary music is such a joy as I get to touch many lives with music and help to make the students at McCulloch better musicians. I strive to provide students with opportunities to perform, create, and explore music through the use of technology, classrom instruments, and singing. My musical goal for our students is to create life long music learners who are active in the community and make music a part of their lives to be passed on to the next generation. I am looking forward to a great school year in music!
