Kathleen holds a B.S. in Biology and Education from St. John’s University, and is currently pursuing her Upper Elementary Montessori certification through The Center For Guided Montessori Studies. Prior to joining Oak Meadow in 2014, she worked as an Elementary Science Educator for over 20 years. She lived and taught in Hawaii for over five years. Both of her daughters are Oak Meadow alumni. She enjoys working at Oak Meadow because “it is a place where children can learn, grow, and develop a strong sense of self and community. Our students become life-long learners who take ownership of their education.” Outside of teaching, Kathleen enjoys spending time with her family, cooking, walking her dog, reading, hiking, and traveling.
