"O come, let us sing unto the LORD:
let us make a joyful noise."
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!
Happy Summer Holidays. Summer is a full of music. I hope you take time to learn some silly songs, listen to your favorite songs and, my personal favorite, singing around the campfire!
I have included a list of musical sites and musical 'adventures' you might like to visit this summer. Have fun!!
Have fun exploring. If you find a neat music site don't forget to pass it on to Mrs. Hetherington.
