Kate began at CCP as a 3s Lead Teacher in 2016 and has been the Director since 2021.

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 is married to Scott and is the mom of her two wonderful children: Cooper (14) and Kellan (12). Their family loves to camp, travel, watch “How It’s Made” and play board games. She spends most of her free time cross-stitching, coaching her son’s Odyssey of the Mind team, and taking her daughter to dance performances.

She has taught 8th grade Language Arts, preschool art and music and adored her time here at CCP with the 3s. She is a strong believer that learning comes through movement and play, so she loves a classroom that is loud, messy and fun! She thoroughly looks forward to working with your family to give your child the best preschool experience possible!
