Degrees and Certifications:
Mrs. Karen Shillington
Hello! I am very happy to be teaching music at Saint Theresa School. I was born in Kingston, Ontario, Canada and spent my childhood years growing up in Michigan.
I have a Bachelor’s Degree in Elementary Education with a minor in Music. I have been teaching for twenty years, including fourteen years of Elementary Music in Catholic Schools.
My objective is to create an excellent musical learning environment where students will practice excellence, use musical movement to express themselves, and create and learn music. I want my students to experience the joy of music, and understand that we all belong to God, developing our gifts in beautiful harmony for His purpose.
I enjoy musical concerts, decorating and remodeling old homes, art, camping and cooking different ethnic dishes. My wonderful students and the people here at Saint Theresa’s have made me feel very welcome. I look forward to teaching music and lifting our spirits through song.
