Brook has two favorite teachers. Mr Roach, her Band Director at Loy Norrix in Kalamazoo. And her sister Mrs. Steere, who teaches 2nd grade. Hats off to them both on TEACHER appreciation day! Mr. Roach encouraged Brook's love of music and always made her feel like she could out-play all the boys in the trumpet section! And her sister, whose love and compassion for her students surpasses any ever seen. You're amazing. Thank you both for doing what you do.
