Meet Mrs. Shaver-Krus!

Hello! My name is Mrs. Shaver-Krus and I love teaching Music!!  There is nothing like seeing the joy on students’ faces when they are making music! It is wonderful to see the connections the students make with other aspects of their life through music. In Music Class we create our own music, sing and play, explore music of other cultures, and have fun learning!

My Education and Credentials:

Bachelor of Science in Music Therapy

Bachelor of Arts is Psychology

Master of Music, Emphasis in Music Education

Certified Kodály Method Educator

Missouri Certified Vocal Music K - 12

I am married and the proud mother of three grown sons.  I am the Music Director at St. Simon the Apostle, which is also my home parish. I love to go bike riding, work in my garden, and play with my dog, Cocoa.

I can sum up how great St. Francis is in one word: COMMUNITY!!  This is a place where every person is valued and supported! The administration, staff, students, and parents look out for each other and help to build God’s Kingdom. Here at St. Francis everyone pulls together in good times and in tough times!
