Kate is the lead in the 3s 2 class. She was raised primarily in NC but lived in Delaware and Texas with her family before moving back to NC in 2015. She received her BA from NC State University before becoming a Corp Member with Teach for America. She has taught 8th grade Language Arts, preschool art and music and has found her favorite place in the Fantastic 3’s room (T/TH)! She loves this age particularly because of their growing independence. It is so fun to see how much they change and grow just in one year. She is a strong believer that learning comes through movement and play, so her classroom is loud, messy and fun! She is married to Scott and is the mom of a 7-year-old boy and 9-year-old girl who both attend Oak Ridge Elementary where she is the PTO President. Their family loves to read, travel, watch “How It’s Made” and play board games.
