Hi! My name is Mrs. Rica Goldyn and I am your music teacher here at Palmer Elementary. This will be my second year teaching at Palmer, but this year marks my 8th year as a music teacher. I have taught elementary, and I have also had a two-year stint teaching both Junior High and High School Choir.
I have a master's degree in Vocal Performance from North Park University, Chicago IL, which is also where I finished a K-12 Certification program to teach music.
My favorite music lesson to teach is singing. I love working with the kids for the yearly programs and enjoy teaching two-part harmony songs with the after-school choir for 4th and 5th graders.
My husband and I have a pomeranian named Misha who loves to go on walks and enjoys yummy treats.
Very happy to be working here for the Palmer babies and looking forward to fun music classes everyday!!!
