About Kate

I am an elementary school teacher at a local private school in Yarmouth, Maine. I earned my BA in Political Science from Drew University and my MAT in Elementary Education from Manhattanville College. For the last nine years, I served as a lead third grade teacher at Norfolk Academy in Norfolk, VA. Prior to that, I worked for Score Educational Centers teaching reading, math, and spelling to students aged 4-14.

While at Norfolk Academy I also coached at the middle and high school level in field hockey and lacrosse. I also created and developed a reading curriculum and social studies curriculum for the third grade. My passion is teaching elementary students, and helping them foster a love of learning.


I have had extensive training in Singapore Math. I attended the Staff Development Educators National Math Conference in Las Vegas last summer. I have also been a part of many SDE workshops. I start with teaching math concepts concretely through manipulatives, and then move to more abstract thinking, I like to make math fun and relate it to real life situations.

I love to get children excited about reading and confident in their ability. I like to teach from a phonetic base and then expose them to many different genres and authors to see what might spark their interest. I take a balanced literacy approach to teaching reading skills, so that my students are strong in their comprehension, grammar, and writing skills.

I am certified in both Maine and Virginia to teach grade K-6. I help students develop strong study and organizational skills, so that they can be successful.
