Ms. Appel

Hello, my name is Katie Appel and I am so excited to be your child’s music teacher this year!  I am looking forward to continuing my career at Ivy Stockwell Elementary. I graduated from Luther College, in the small town of Decorah, IA, with a B.A. in music education in 2019. 


I grew up in the small Minnesota town of Albert Lea, with my parents, brother, and dog. I moved out to Colorado back in January of 2020, and have loved being out here with the mountains. When I am not teaching, you will find me hiking, painting, baking delicious treats, or spending time with my family or friends. 


Ivy is truly a special place, and I am honored to be the music teacher here. It is going to be a fantastic year of music-making and learning. Go Stallions!
