Welcome to my Web page at Centennial.
My name is Kathleen Divine-McCaffrey, but I go simply by Mrs. McCaffrey to the students. I graduated with a Bachelor’s Degree in Music Education (Instrumental Focus) from Trenton State College. From there I went to West Chester University and graduated with a Master’s degree in Secondary Education/Music Education. I have also finished a series of post graduate Music Education coursework through University of the Arts at Villanova University. I was hired in 1993 to the position of Instrumental Music teacher at Davis Elementary school.
I believe playing a musical instrument is one of the most beneficial learning experiences for students. Please take a moment to watch this clip on how playing an instrument increases the power of the brain.
