Degrees and Certifications:

Kathy Palmer

My name is Kathy Palmer and I am very excited to be part of the Marshall team!  I received my B. A. in Music Education from the College of St. Benedict in MN and a Master's Degree in Education from SMSU in Marshall.  I have taught music at all levels in many different settings over the years including teaching classroom music, directing choirs and bands, and maintaining a private piano studio in my home.

One of the reasons I have had the opportunity to teach music at so many different levels and in many different settings is that I served as a military spouse for 20 years during my husband, Bill's, military career.  Our family moved to Bill's hometown of Marshall after his military retirement.  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 are now empty-nesters with two grown daughters, Christine, and Katy.  Our aptly named cat, Mischief, keeps us company.

I enjoy traveling, camping, reading, biking, volunteering with liturgical music at our church, along with many different crafts.  I look forward to meeting the K students and making music together!
