Music: Ms. Padden
I am incredibly blessed to be here at St. Michael Catholic School as your music teacher. I have been teaching at StMCS since 2003 and prior to that, I taught music and art at St. Joachim's Catholic school in Philadelphia through AmeriCorps/Catholic Volunteer Network. I graduated from the College of St. Benedict with a degree in music and education and received my Master of Education from St. Mary's University. I continue my professional growth though graduate courses at St. Thomas University and received training and certificates in Orff, Kodaly, and World Music Drumming. In my free time I enjoy hiking, camping, crafting with my sister, spending time with my family (especially my niece and nephews) and playing the folk harp. I look forward to a wonderful year of learning and creating music with your students!
