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 33 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 4 yrs ago I moved to Portland from Edmonton, Alberta, Canada and was excited to connect with Holy Cross. Some of you  have met me when I have been in the school volunteering or subbing.  I am looking forward to seeing you all in music class!

We are going to be busy in music this year.  Singing, dancing, playing instruments and exploring our creativity.  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!

We will be spending time getting to know each other and

learning Music room routines.

We have a new school song to learn (and a few silly ones too!!)

Stay tuned for a sneak peek of the school song,
