Hi! My name is Michele Hetherington.  I love teaching, especially music.  I am so excited to be teaching the students of Holy Cross. I have been teaching in elementary/middle school classrooms for 35 years. Part of my experience has been leading beginning band, choir, Handbells and Orff ensembles. I am an Elementary Music Specialist with a B.Ed and Orff training. When I retired I moved to Portland from Edmonton, Alberta, Canada and was excited to connect with Holy Cross. The 2021/2022 school year was a lot of fun. I am looking forward to seeing you all in music class for 2022/2023!

Singing, dancing, playing instruments and exploring our creativity is top of the charts for 2022.  Every child is a musician and we are going to be working on our musical skills!

Parents, please know that I love having visitors come to the music room.  It gives us an opportunity to share our music.  When Covid-19 restrictions have eased know, you are always welcome!
