About Mrs. Bontrager
Hello! My name is Mrs. Lynnae Bontrager, and I am the band director for the Coal City Intermediate and Middle Schools. This is my 4th year in the Coal City school district. I graduated from Olivet Nazarene University in January 2018 with my B.M. in Music Education and an endorsement in Special Education. Giving all students, regardless of ability level, the opportunity to experience and participate in music is my passion.
I live in Kankakee, IL with my husband Tyler. We met in marching band at Olivet, and we perform in several ensembles/pit orchestras in the Kankakee area throughout the year. Besides performing music, I love to play board games, hike, waterski, play tennis, and hang out with our cat, Aspen.
I am so excited for this upcoming school year as we increase our musical knowledge and skills as well as prepare and perform many great pieces!
