My name is Kathy Palmer and I am excited to teach music and band at Lincoln Elementary! I grew up in northern Minnesota and graduated from the College of St. Benedict with a B.A. in Music Education and SMSU with a Master's Degree in Education. My husband, Bill, is an Army veteran, which allowed me the opportunity to teach at many different levels and many different places, including Louisiana, California, and Missouri. I have also taught piano lessons for over 35 years.
Both Bill and I are educators, dedicated to helping students learn the skills that will enable them to shape and find satisfaction in their lives. We have two grown daughters, Christine, and Katy. We also have an aptly named cat, Mischief. I enjoy traveling, camping, reading, doing various crafts, and volunteering with the music ministry at our church. I look forward to learning about and making wonderful music together with all the students of Lincoln Elementary!
