Meet the Director
Emily Donaldson, a high school graduate of Cedarburg High School, received her Bachelor's of Music in Vocal Performance from Wheaton College (Wheaton, IL), before returning to Wisconsin to complete her teaching certifications in choral and general music at University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee.
The 2017-2018 school year marks her tenth year as a music educator and her third here in the Glendale-River Hills School District. Prior to joining the Glen Hills family, Miss Donaldson taught in other districts in southeastern Wisconsin and internationally in the People's Republic of China.
Miss Donaldson's students regularly accuse her of singing "all the time," and she as to admit they are probably right. She loves teaching children to sing and finds special joy in watching students encounter the power of music for the first time.
When she is not busy teaching choir or ukulele club at Glen Hills, Miss Donaldson serves as a section leader in the Milwaukee-based Bel Canto Chorus. She also finds time to enjoy cooking, writing, running, and travel. Her newest hobby is making a valiant effort not to kill her houseplants!
