Meet the Teachers

Kendra Ohime - 4th - 6th General Music and Band

I  am a wife, mother, and enthusiastic music teacher. I taught band and general music at a K12 school for a couple of years in Northern Indiana. My husband and I then took off to Romania to work with the church there  for five years. Since we have been stateside, I have been involved in music in  many capacities. I have lead Children's worship at our church, offered music lessons for numerous instruments, helped with the local marching band, band  camps, and substituted in the schools. Through all of this I have realized just  how much I miss working with kids and making music. I look forward to an  exciting year of learning ahead!


Cheyane Merz - K-3rd General Music and Choir

Hello! My name is Cheyane Merz, and I am the choir and K-3 general music teacher at New Auburn School. I have been involved in music from the time I was six all the way up through college. Choir and vocal jazz were my outlets of choice in high school, though I continued choir in college. I moved more toward guitar and piano in my college years and played in a nationwide music ministry called Stained Glass for two summers. Working with kids and teaching them music is one of my favorite things to do, and I am so looking forward to working with the students here in New Auburn!
