Meet Mrs. McFarland
Welcome to the new PCS Music website! I am so excited for another great year! My name is Katie McFarland and I will be your music teacher. I graduated summa cum laude from the University of Maine with a Bachelor's degree in Music Education. My main instrument is clarinet and I was principal clarinetist of the Symphonic Band my final year in college.
I live in South Paris with my husband, Duncan. Both of us are music teachers which means we spend a lot of time making, teaching, and listening to music!
My favorite thing about being a music teacher is getting other people excited about music! It is a fantastic lifelong endeavor and helps develop sensitivity, teamwork, self-discipline, and purpose in our lives.
My favorite thing about Poland Community School is how nice and supportive all the teachers and staff are.
Outside of music class I like to visit new places, bake, go to festivals and museums, surprise other people, tease kitties, and visit the ocean.
I have a feeling that it is going to be marvelous year with some awesome students!
