Kathy joined the MSGH community in 1994 when her son was a student in Una Barry’s Primary classroom. Enamored from the start of the MSGH community, Kathy quickly joined the Board of Trustees and then went on to become an assistant in the Primary community, where she remained for the next five years. As her passion for Montessori education grew, so too did her role in the school. Kathy served MSGH as a Primary teacher for seven years, after which she accepted an opportunity to join the administrative team as the Director of Development. Over the course of two years, she helped launch MSGH’s full-time development department before making a brief move to Florida. We were thrilled when she was able to return to us in 2011 to cover a maternity leave and once again lead a Primary classroom.
It wasn’t until 2012, however, that a long-awaited opportunity presented itself: Kathy was able to begin the AMI Infant Community training when a position opened up to teach in our Toddler Community.
Kathy holds a Bachelor of Arts in Psychology from the University of Connecticut, a Primary-level teaching certificate from Maria Montessori Training Organisation in London, England and is currently completing her AMI Infant Community training at The Montessori Institute in Denver, Colorado.
In her free time, she enjoys entertaining friends and family, hosting sleepover parties for her many great nieces and nephews and relaxing with a good book and a cup of tea.
