Barb Vanek

My name is Barb Vanek and I am the vocal music teacher at King Elementary.  I originally hail from Nebraska where I grew up on a large farm and attended a one room school for some of my elementary years.  My husband and I moved to Michigan 35 years ago so he could pursue a career as an engineer with General Motors.  I finished my degree at the University of Michigan and began my teaching career at George Elementary in Ypsilanti in 1987. The following year I was hired to fill a position at King and I have been there ever since!
 
My husband and I have two grown children who both live in Chicago.  Both are alumni of King Elementary and the University of Michigan.  In addition to teaching, I enjoy traveling, hiking, reading, and gardening.
