Gordon, Cathrine - Music


I am originally from Kentucky.  Upon high school graduation, I moved to Murfreesboro to attend MTSU and have stayed ever since!  I have been an educator for 23 years, holding degrees in Music Education, Administration and Supervision, and Curriculum and Instruction.  One of the most important things to know about my educational philosophy is that I firmly believe learning is not just limited to the classroom and most especially, that ALL subjects are related.  During our class time we will explore multiple ways to connect learning across the curriculum and relate it to life outside the classroom!

Outside of school, I am a member of a wonderfully active and crazy family!  My husband Donald and I are parents to three children: Robert and Ainsley, freshmen at Oakland High School, and Maura, a fifth grader at Overall Creek!  We also are parents to four cats (our "furry children") Jack, Annabelle, Fraser, and Maynard.  All three of the children play soccer, and as you can imagine, we attend many games and practices each week.  Additionally, I am a voracious reader, sports fanatic, and "culinary artist"!! 

I feel very blessed to be part of the inaugural Overall Creek Elementary faculty and staff.  This school is going to be an amazing experience for everyone involved.  If you have any questions, concerns, or just want to chat, please feel free to email me, cathrine.gordon@cityschools.net.  And, lastly this mantra is one your child will see every day in class:
