My name is Renee Kiah and I am originally from upstate New York. This is my 26th year of teaching, and the 3rd year I have taught at IHM. I earned my bachelors and masters degrees from the Crane School of Music at the State University of New York in Potsdam. I have taught in New York, Georgia, Illinois (and now, Ohio!)
After graduation, my husband (Jude) and I moved to Georgia for a short time. A few years later, we settled in Illinois and started a family. We have two children, Aaron, 14 and Addie, 11.
We moved to Cincinnati three years ago when my husband accepted a position at Xavier University. Since moving here, we have become avid hikers and love to take advantage of the beautiful parks and trails here. In addition to hiking, we enjoy kayaking, biking, and traveling as a family.
When I am not teaching, I am most likely at a school event for Aaron or Addie. I also enjoy cooking and reading.
