Greetings! My name is Ms. Saavedra or Ms. S for short. I am the music teacher, choir director, musical director, and drama club sponsor at Lundahl Middle School. I've been a performer for many years, but find that my passion truly lies in teaching! Growing up I played the violin and viola in my school's orchestra, but eventually turned my attention to singing. I learned to play guitar and piano along the way. I'm passionate about all types of music and make an effort to familiarize myself with a variety of artists and genres.
When I'm not teaching, I'm usually chasing my son around the house. We live an hour east of Crystal Lake in the northern suburbs of Chicago. Growing up so close to the city means I'm a huge sports fan. If there's a game on, I'm probably watching it! I also enjoy running, crafting, and cooking.
