  • Welcome to the world of music at Joy Elementary School.
    I am Mrs. Radke, the music teacher at Joy Elementary School. I graduated from Valparaiso University, Valparaiso, IN in 1978 with a degree in elementary education and a teaching minor in music. I earned a masters degree from Valparaiso University, Valparaiso, IN in 1983, professionalizing my teaching degree and earning endorsements in music and remedial reading. I have taught music for the Michigan City Area Schools from 1978 until 1990, and from 2006 until the present.
    My family and I operate Radke Apple Orchard in Michigan City. I am the organist at Trinity Lutheran Church in La Porte, IN. I really enjoy watching the Chicago Blackhawks play hockey.
