Catherine holds a B.A. in Art & Art History from Kenyon College, and a M.Ed. in Elementary Education from Lesley University. She has been an Art21 Educator since 2012, a program based on the belief that the art and ideas of contemporary visual artists are powerful models for creative and critical thinking across different subject areas and disciplines. Prior to joining Oak Meadow in 2002, Catherine worked as an art teacher at Prescott School in Groton, MA, was a 3rd grade teacher at Dedham Country Day School, and worked in Advertising and Design for nine years prior to graduate school. She enjoys watching Oak Meadow students’ curiosity take them in unexpected directions and seeing their confidence grow with their experiences. Her two children, Oren and Ethan, both attended Oak Meadow and graduated in 2011 and 2013. Outside of teaching, Catherine enjoys making her own art, reading, cooking, gardening, hiking and traveling. She has been to 19 MLB stadiums!
