Teacher Kate was raised in the Pacific Northwest and began her work in childcare 15 years ago as a nanny, which inspired her to move onto teaching young children and to pursue an AA in Early Childhood Education. She graduated in 2010 from North Seattle Community College and moved to Sequim three years later.
She delights in providing her students with sensory-rich experiences and appreciates that at this early stage of development, everything is a first. Therefore, her goal as a teacher is to create an environment where children feel free and safe to explore and investigate the ever-changing world around them.
Kate has a young daughter of her own who helps her keep a fresh perspective.
